The Gregorian Reform marked a significant turnover of the hitherto common order and the religious forms. The change evoked by this reform cannot be regarded as revolutionary; it is rather a continuous transition process. The period of investiture controversy was more than an era of conflicts between ecclesiastical and secular rulers, but of efforts to eliminate the principal deficiencies afflicting the Church. Based on an analysis of information sources in the 2nd half of the 11th century, an appeal for return to the original conditions of the Church on the territory of the Italian Peninsula not only among the clergymen but also among the laymen became...

This study surveys the process of the establishment of the diocese of České Budějovice. It is possible to look at this process in different time perspectives: From a long-term perspective it is a result of a half-century effort of the Habsburg monarchs to improve the situation of a church authority in the territory of the Prague archdiocese or, subsequently, in the whole empire.

The study describes the endeavour of the Archbishop of Olomouc Josef Karel Matocha (1888-1961) during the preparation of the Czech university textbooks of theology and its context in the course of history. In this way it discovers the concept and the method of theology that was considered desirable during the years 1949-1950 by the local Church and also by the circle of the academics who were respected as the representatives of the "sacred sciences" at that time. From this point of view it is necessary to understand the study as a part of a wider prolegomena in the history of the Bohemian catholic theology in the second half of the 20th century.
