Year 2005

In 2005 (18 March) the department of medieval history of the Historical Institute of the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic in cooperation with the Department of Czech History of the Philosophical Faculty of Charles University organized the first meeting of researchers who specialize in topics related to the courts in the Middle Ages. The intent behind the event was to establish a discussion forum for the study of courts and residences in the Middle Ages which had never been implemented in a larger scope before. The selected topic offered a number of opportunities to focus either on the court community surrounding the ruler or at noble or church courts, including the issue of settlement locations and residences. As an outcome of the discussion a collection of articles called Courts and Residences in the Middle Ages was published as the first supplementum to the Mediaevalia Historica Bohemica journal.
