Course objectives
This series of seminars is aimed at familiarizing students with editing work when publishing Bohemical diplomatic material from the turn of the 13th/14th centuries as part of a critical edition of the Codex diplomaticus et epistolaris regni Bohemiae. Attention will largely focus on an analysis of the individual types of preserved documents (i.e. a typology of charters from both the perspective of diplomatic circles and from the perspective of their legal content) and establishing editorial techniques appropriate for the publication of the material. Time will also be given to using modern technology (online sources, databases, digitalized documents) when publishing Mediaeval sources.
Learning outcomes
1. The student will extend his knowledge of editing Czech diplomatic material acquired during the Bc. series;
2. There will be an examination of specific examples of editing techniques for the Codex diplomaticus et epistolaris regni Bohemiae, i.e., an edition with the maximum level of accuracy;
3. Learn to use editorial skills in other work in similar fields (the identification of source locations, the identification of people mentioned in the sources, translating historical sources into Czech, etc.).
  • 1. The typology of official documents to the start of the 14th century;
  • 2. The development of a diplomatic critique of Přemyslid official documents;
  • 3. The typology of edited published Bohemian official material (Regesta x Codex Diplomaticus).
