Jednota bratrská - nové pohledy na její postavení a roli v městech pražských doby předbělohorské
Unity of Brethren - new views of its position and role in the towns of Prague of the Period before the Battle of White Mountain
Languages of publication
Based on an analysis of the edition of the list of the members of the Prague- Tuchoměřice congregation, compiled by the bishop of the Unity of Brethren Matouš Konečný in 1607 and found in 2006 within the episcopal archive. It was a group of burghers tending to the creation of significantly closed communities of connected familial, friendship and professional ties, which settled in a concentrated fashion on the prestigious addresses of all three towns of Prague. It was precisely these Prague fraternal burgher elites that intervened in a fundamental way in the course of the Bohemian Revolt in 1618–1620 and paid for its defeat also with death sentences and to a degree much more distinctive than was the case with the representatives of other social classes of estates’ society, or other Protestant confessions.
