OBRAZ UHRŮ A UHER V DÍLECH CÍRKEVNÍCH KRONIKÁŘŮ Z ČESKÝCH ZEMÍ ZE 14. STOLETÍ
(An Image of Hungary and Hungarians in Works by Church Chroniclers from the Czech Lands in the 14th Century)
Abstract: The author of the text attempts to analyse the ways how the church chroniclers from the Czech Lands depicted and characterised Hungary and its inhabitants in the 14th century. A detailed analysis was performed for the following six chronicles by church authors: The Žďár Monastery Chronicle, The Zbraslav Chronicle, The Chronicle of František Pražský, The Chronicle of Beneš Krabic of Weitmile and The Chronicle of Přibík Pulkava of Radenín. The analysis also included the interesting Dalimil Chronicle, for which the background of its author is unknown. The author further analysed the Autobiography of King Charles IV of Luxembourg. For the purpose of a comparison with another social background, the author stepped beyond the limits of the 14th century and analysed three chronicles mostly covering the 15th century: The Chronicle of Bartošek of Drahonice, The Hussite Chronicle of Vavřinec of Březová and Staré letopisy české [The Old Bohemian Annals].
