Charles IV. – Spiritual World, Foundations, Buildings and Their Art Fixtures

Charles IV. – Spiritual World, Foundations, Buildings and Their Art Fixtures


The research team of professors Kuthan and Royt at the Catholic Theological Faculty of Charles University is engaged with one of the greatest personalities of the European Middle Ages – Charles IV (1316–1378).



The mapping and complex working of the extensive activities of the sovereign who was outstanding in his political abilities, who contributed to the peace stability of a large part of the European continent, who founded Prague University and as Emperor he supported  and confirmed the origin of other universities on the territory of Holy Roman Empire, is at the heart of the research activities of the centre. He was among those few medieval sovereigns who were men of letters. From his great visions some founding deeds originated and became permanent  in the appearance of Prague and the whole of our country. Equally important is also the context  of his political and founding works in the whole of Europe. Attention is paid to his sources of inspiration and spirituality as well as the response of his operations that followed.
