Erysichthon fällt die Cereiseiche. Ein Gemälde von Jakob Grimmer und Gillis Mostaert und seine Deutung

Erysichthon fells Cererin's oak. An Interpretation of the Painting by Jakob Grimmer and Gillis Mostaert

pp. 362-369 (Czech summary)

The subject of the article is the joint painting by Jakob Grimmer and Gillis Mostaert, which was probably made in 1575 and is kept at the chateau gallery at Rájec-Jestřebí. The article concentrates in particular on the iconographic programme of the painting, which was based on Ovid's Metamorphoses yet took on a broader meaning in the context of the relationship between Calvinism and Catholicism.

I florentini al castello: il progetto di Bernardo Buontalenti e Giovanni Gargiolli per la nuova galleria di Rodolfo II

Florentines at Prague Castle: Bernardo Buontalenti and Giovanni Gargiolli's design for the New Gallery of Rudolf II

pp. 370-384 (Czech summary)

Building activity at Prague Castle intensified after 1585, when the imperial court moved to Prague. In that year, the architect Giovanni Gargiolli entered the service of Rudolf II. The article focuses on his designs for the renovation of the ruling seat and also treats the equally important work of another Florentine architect, Bernardo Buontalenti. The new interpretation is based first and foremost on two letters from 1587 deposited at the Archivio di Stato di Firenze, Mediceo del Principato.

Páter Tobiáš Gebler a "primae delineationes" jezuitských staveb ve druhé polovině 17. století

Father Tobiáš Gebler and the 'Primae Delineationes' of Jesuit Buildings in the Second Half of the 17th Century

pp. 385-405 (German summary)

The figure of Father Tobiáš (Tobias) Gebler is associated with artistic as well as spiritual endeavours. He is known as one of the delineators of the Jesuit monasteries; that is, those who were concerned with the functional and iconographic requirements of the plan of the monastery buildings. The study looks at Gebler's work in the field of architecture and puts him in the context of specific designs, mostly located in Moravian towns.

Urbanity on the Fringes of Polish Statehood. A Celebration of the Unique Cities of Vraetslav and Leopolis

Urbanita na pomezí polské státnosti. Oslava jedinečných měst Vraetslav a Leopolis

pp. 406-420 (Czech summary)

The essay outlines the history of two important Polish cities - Wrocław (Breslau) and Lwów (Lvov, Lemberg) - focusing on their development against the backdrop of the formation of a social and cultural consciousness. According to the author, the interpretation of post-medieval civilization from the perspective of the city allows one to steer clear of racial stereotypes, as the concept of citizenship in these cities constituted an older and more powerful form of social and cultural identity than the state.
