K proměnám městského úřednictva v 18. století
Changes of town clerical staff in the 18th century
Languages of publication
The study thematizes selected questions that can be considered as perspective starting points for desired comparative research of the changes undergone by the urban bureaucracy – serving primarily, yet not exclusively, in the town service – in the Bohemian lands during the 18th century that would be more broadly based and set in the context of the Central European development. The studied questions are introduced as parts of three basic areas of issues. In the first one, space is given to townspeople who served as the “cadre” basis of town clerical staff and who were adjusting to the processes of bureaucratization and professionalization. The second area focuses on the course, impacts and period perception of the changes occurring within the town (self-)government, whereas special attention is paid to the phenomenon of regulation of municipalities during the reign of the Emperor Joseph II . The third area deals with the (dis)continuity of town political elites.
