Description While the first part of the book Czech country for the first Přemyslovců in 10 to 12 century devoted more political history, watched the beginnings Přemyslite power and engaged in an effort to get Přemyslovců for his family as the most prestigious position in the empire, the second part devoted to practical problems. We saw how they perceived the Czech lands Reich chroniclers and how the image "Boheman" in early medieval sources could contribute to shaping their identity. What practical evidence of mutual communication between the Czech Republic and the Empire but we? This question will answer me with tracks left behind by the cult of St. Wenceslas, we will deal specifically with solemn consecration of churches, where his remains were kept, and head towards the footsteps of manuscripts Wenceslas legend. Ties, however, also reflected in the material culture. Valuable guide are particularly construction, art historians whose studies have reported the presence of patterns and indirectly lead us to the knowledge of the mutual transfer of ideas and working practices. As to the possible influence of southern culture and Eastern culture outlines the example of a dispute about the Old Slavic liturgy and literature in the following chapter. The government and power are important phenomena of social life. What about the boundaries of their power? What means the prince used to the government, who ruled and what it has limited the exercise of power? This is a series of questions that always stirred the humanities and today agitated debate between domestic medievisty. Some guidelines offers a trio of chapters, namely, dealing with older discussions, partly practical limits of life in the Middle Ages and also the structure of the society and its dynamics. No one can question the importance of the Church in the Middle Ages. Therefore, the next couple of pages are devoted to creating both basic structures of the Church (diocese origins parish organizations, monasteries).
