THE EVENTS OF THE BATTLE OF THE WHITE MOUNTAIN: THEIR CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES IN THE WORKS OF EXILES AFTER THE BATTLE OF THE WHITE MOUNTAIN
Languages of publication
This study documents, by means of works written by contemporary chroniclers - exiles fleeing the country after the Battle of the White Mountain - the causes and consequences of the Czech Estates Uprising. The most important source to provide us with information on this range of problems is the 'Ecclesiastic History' by Pavel Skala of Zhor. Pavel Skala of Zhor was a clerk of the directorial government and the royal office of Friedrich von Pfalz (Frederick Palatine), whom he accompanied abroad for two years. In the last four volumes of his 'Ecclesiastic History' he gives an account, from the point of view of an eyewitness, of events in the context of the European history that took place in Bohemia before the Estate Uprising, during the short reign of Frederick Palatine and after the defeat of Bohemian troops at the White Mountain. The author of the study does not forget the works of Pavel Jesin of Bezdezec, Mikulas Divis of Doubravin and a number of others.
