CEREMONY AND RITUAL IN HISTORICAL RESEARCH AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 21ST CENTURY
For several decades historical science in Western Europe has focused on the monarch´s ceremony and ritual, as their knowledge allows us to re-assess some moments connected with the nature of royal, or possibly imperial power. The most important ceremonies connected with the person of a ruler and his immediate environment are coronation ceremonies, which started to be researched, also in the Czech environment, in a novel way as a means of political communication. Thus, there is the ruler and his 'media strategy' on the one hand and on the other hand the public, which attempts to accept the image of their ruler. Less attention has until now been devoted to research dealing with Czech coronations in terms of geographical comparison in both the Central European and the wider European context, as well as the development of ceremonies in the course of time, especially towards the enlightened 18th century. However, in addition to coronations, other ceremonial moments such as 'transitional rituals' (baptisms, weddings, funerals),a division of the working day, festivities at the court or the arrangement of the ruler´s personal space, whose aim was to regulate access to him and participate in his representation have been researched.
