Languages of publication
The study offers a regional look into Bohemian history on the example of a microregion in the vicinity of several key sovereign centres in close proximity to Prague (ca 20 km W): Tetín’s fortified settlement, the provostry of St John under the Rock (Skala), Castle Tetín and the town of Beroun. Since it follows the history of the region from the Early Middle Ages until after the beginning of the Hussite revolution, it allows for the understanding of the changing strategies, which the sovereign used in its control. In the same way, it considers a group little investigated – the lower nobility, which played an important role in this region. Here, the author focuses particularly on the question of their seats, properties, relation to the sovereign and to the question of their offices. Finally, there is an attempt to summarize the very meagre data on the situation of the serfs in the 14th century. As such, it is a certain prolegomena to the further research of the region in the Hussite Period.
