Description The text focuses on the picture of (Mongolian) Buddhism (then terminology Lamaism) in Czechoslovakia after the Second World War. There is a full scale of attitudes from the negative assessment (represented e.g. Jiří Hronek, Propagandistic Antilamaism – Adolf Hoffmeister, Dominik Tatarka, Ladislav Mňačko, Emil Hršel) by more neutral position to the Czechoslovak academic study of Buddhism (Buddhology) in fieldwork in Mongolia, represented by Pavel Poucha (1955) as well as Lumír Jisl field research from 1957 to 1969 (during his four expeditions). This contribution in a collective monograph is based on both published and unpublished scholarly material from Jisl family archive as well as other Czech archives (Pavel Poucha).
