Doctoral Studies Programme
The Centre for Classical Studies at the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences cooperates with the Institute of Greek and Latin Studies of the Faculty of Arts of Charles University, Prague, on full-time and part-time doctoral studies programme Latin Medieval and Neo-Latin Studies at the of the Faculty of Arts of Charles University, Prague. The postgraduate students occupy themselves with the history of Latin literature of the era that began with the downfall of the classical civilisation and continued during the emergence of coherent medieval civilisation in Western, Southern and Middle Europe following the renewal of ancient cultural heritage, the evolution of the latter during the High Middle Ages, its changes during the Renaissance and baroque humanism and its transformation in a part of cultural life and science of modern European nations. The study focuses on Latin literary texts of these eras from the viewpoint of linguistics, history of literature and history of arts. Theoretical and practical problems of editing texts from these epochs are studied as well. The content of studies respects the fact that Medieval Latin and Neo-Latin literature is connected with the ancient civilisation, and it pays due attention to the fundamental influence of Christianity on the evolution of Latin literature and to role of the latter in the history of religious life of medieval and early modern Europe.
