John of Neumarkt Milíč of Kroměříž

We cordially invite you to the lecture from the cycle Collegium historiae artium, which will be given by Kathrin Chlench-Priber (Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn) on the topic of John of Neumarkt, Milíč of Kroměříž and the vernacular prayer book culture in 14th century Prague.

The lecture will take place on Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at 4.30 pm in the Institute of Art History CAS, room 117, Husova 4, Prague 1.

John of Neumarkt (c. 1310–1380) and Milíč of Kroměříž (c. 1325–1374) may be considered the two most famous prayer authors of their time. The presentation deals with their Czech and German prayers written in 14th century Prague. On the basis of their prayers and accompanying images, it is possible to sketch the piety culture that prevailed in Prague, which is part of the charismatic spirituality of Bohemia and which also gives important impulses for the vernacular prayer book culture as a whole.
