Chapter Summary

The idea, that there was a farsighted and penetrating Czechization of formerly German or mixed-language areas of what were known as the principle lands of the Crown of Bohemia, comes all the more into conflict with the results of modern research. In the post-revolutionary Lands of the Crown of Bohemia the king's power was shaken. Its maintenance was linked with considerable internal and external difficulties and obstacles; in spite of that however there were more than enough candidates for the empty throne of Bohemia from the death of Sigismund until the election of George of Poděbrady. Elements of Slavophilism and Polaphilism in political documents and literary publicist works indicate that a difference in faith was not in itself an obstacle for contacts of Hussite and Utraquist Bohemia with the surrounding world. Hussite isolationism or the isolation of heretical Bohemia, should therefore be assumed in specific connections.

Keywords: Bohemia; Czechization; Hussite isolationism; Poděbrady; political documents
