Kronika Zbraslavská by Petrus Zittaviensis( Book )

9 editions published in 1905 in Czech and English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Latinská kronika staročeská je dílo dvou příslušníků feudálního duchovenstva, bývalého opata Oty, a Petra Žitavského, od r. 1316 rovněž opata kláštera zbraslavského. Líčí dobu od r. 1260 do r. 1338, t. j. sklonek vlády Přemysla Otakara II., kralování Václava II., Václava III., Rudolfa, Jindřicha Korutanského a zvláště Jana Lucemburského. Otou původně zamýšlená apoteosa života zakladatele zbraslav. kláštera Václava II., se dík Petrovi rozrostla ve skutečnou kroniku, pro nás nejdůležitější historický vyprávěcí pramen stol. 14., neomezující se jen na věci zbraslavské a české. Její cenu jako historického pramene zvyšuje výhodné a význačné postavení autora, který věděl o událostech z vlastní zkušenosti a měl dokonce i osobní zpravodaje o těch událostech, jimž nebyl přítomen. Po stránce slovesné je to dílo vzdělaného a učeného autora, který dovedl vyprávění proložit čtyřmi tisíci leoninských hexametrů, mnohdy i velmi vyumělkovaných. Toto vydání je druhý český překlad, nahrazující dnes již neuspokojující překlad J.V. Nováka z r. 1905, uvedený cennou histor. předmluvou V. Novotného

The labyrinth of the world and the paradise of the heart by Johann Amos Comenius( Book )

4 editions published in 1906 in Czech and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of Protestant spirituality in the early modern period has generally focused on Puritans and Pietists. The tradition of the Slavic Reformation that culminated with John Amos Comenius (1592-1670) has been largely ignored. This volume seeks to redress this imbalance by introducing Comenius's neglected masterpiece, The Labyrinth of the World, to a broader audience." "Though better known as the father of modern education, Comenius was a pastor and spiritual leader of the Bohemian Brethren (Unitas Fratrum), a Czech Protestant group inspired by the Hussite movement of the fifteenth century. The Labyrinth, an allegory of the spiritual journey in the style of Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, represents the culmination of his literary accomplishments. The work was written against the backdrop of the calamitous Thirty Years' War and Comenius's profound personal sufferings. His satirical castigation of the world's false ambitions and values is paralleled by a deep yearning for understanding and experience of life with God." "The work comprises two parts. The first introduces a pilgrim in search of a profession. Escorted by a series of guides who lead him through the maze of life's occupations, he visits tradesmen, scholars, clergy, rulers and various other classes of society. Disillusioned by the petty rivalries and deception that mark every vocation he explores, the pilgrim ultimately despairs of the vanity and emptiness of human existence. In the second part of the text the pilgrim turns inward, where he finds "the paradise of the heart." After encountering Christ, he is led on a spiritual journey among those who have found the true meaning of life in relationship with God."--Jacket
