Selected contents from this journal
National discourse in pre-revolutionary Bohemia (1830‒1848)
Languages of publication
During the period of nationalisation and politicisation of public life in Austria, wellbeing began to be generally perceived as corresponding to national wellbeing above all. The materialist direction of the modern age, along with the nationalist liberal ideas of the first half of the 19th century created the ideal of a state and social order based on a national principle. In the Czech-German discussions underway, the language issue played a central role. As such, the demand for language equality between Czech and German elements of society became the focus of all efforts and concepts formed which aimed to formulate a more specific national programme. The original relatively inclusive perception of society in Bohemia gradually split into a society of Czech and German ethnicity. Looking at the issue of Czech-German relations in pre-revolutionary Bohemia from this perspective can bring a new understanding of the conflict-ridden outcome of Czech-German relations in the revolution of 1848 and subsequent decades.
