Anežka Merhautová - Petr Sommer

Strahovský klášter. Stavební dějiny baziliky od roku 1182 do doby opata Lohelia

The Strahov Monastery. A History of the Construction of the Basilica from 1182 to the Times of Abbot Lohelius

pp. 302-314 (German summary)

This article by Anežka Merhautová and Petr Sommer is a sequel to a previous study by the two authors, published in Umění 3/1999. It monitors all events from 1182 onwards, which had an immediate impact on the architectonics of the basilica of the Premonstrate monastery in Strahov. To a great extent, the construction history mirrors steps taken by the individual abbots, as well as the effects of natural disasters.
