Mikuláš Bystřice z Vojnic na Kroměříži (1434-1478, †1480). Osudy jednoho moravského rytíře v proměnách pozdně středověké společnosti:
Mikuláš Bystřice of Vojnice and Kroměříž (1434-1478, †1480). The fate of one Moravian knight during the shifts in late medieval society:
This work deals with Mikuláš Bystřice of Vojnice and Kroměříž, who was born at the beginning of 15th century into an unimportant and not very wealthy lower noble family (knights). Nevertheless, he built up a fortune during the Hussite wars and the subsequent period. At the same time, he penetrated into the highest levels of politics, which in the post-Hussite Wars Moravian Margraviate was mainly represented by the higher nobility (lords). This work tries to put his life story into a wider context, especially in terms of political and social history. In seven thematic chapters, it deals with his origin, career working at the side of the Olomouc bishops during the Hussite Wars, his political engagement, residences, property base, social connections, and his social status.
