Chapter Summary

In all the essentials of economic life, in coping with the everyday business of procuring the necessities of life, the achievements of the inhabitants of Bohemia and Moravia matched those of their neighboring populations. A unique written source has shown us the profound changes that Bohemian society underwent in the ninth-century. This chapter reviews the archeological sources, which point to an even greater entanglement of social contradictions. In order to gain a greater insight into events in ninth-century Bohemia, it turns our attention to what would later become its center. The chapter also presents the arguments that the Lumbe-garden cemetery might represent the burial place of aristocratic Moravian women who had married Bohemian nobles, or lived at the ducal court of Prague and died there, and were laid to rest in Bohemian soil.

Keywords: aristocratic women; Bohemia; ecumenical Christianity; Moravia; ninth-century; Prague Castle
