Medieval Prague, Bohemia and their neighbours: new perspectives and connections
Opacic Masters, Zoe (2009) Medieval Prague, Bohemia and their neighbours: new perspectives and connections. In: Opacic Masters, Zoe (ed.) Prague and Bohemia: Medieval Art, Architecture and Cultural Exchange in Central Europe. British Archaeological Association Conference Transactions 32. Leeds, UK: Maney Publishing, British Archaeological Association, pp. 1-7. ISBN 9781906540586.
This volume explores one of the most creative periods in Central European history. At its core is the medieval city of Prague, which became the seat of the Luxembourg dynasty in the 14th century and was fashioned as the political and cultural capital of the Holy Roman Empire. That dramatic change in the fortunes of Prague and Bohemia — from Romanesque roots to Late Gothic heyday and the religious uncertainties of the Hussite era — is examined through fifteen essays written by scholars from Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Poland, Switzerland and the USA.
