The Other in the Eyes of the Elites: from Antiquity to the End of the 20th century - 25-26/09/2017,
In accordance with the 14th century Zbraslav Chronicle, during the coronation ceremonies of Wenceslaus II Přemyslid for the king of Poland in 1300 the Archbishop of Gniezno, Jakub Świnka, was to summarise the speech delivered in Latin by the Bishop of Brixen, with the remark that the oration would have been excellent if only the speaker was not “a dog’s head and a German”. This short comment reminds us that all kinds of sentiments and stereotypes, which can be found in the statements referring to the representatives of other ethnic groups, are not just a modern phenomenon but were, in fact, present also in the distant past. The aim of this conference is to examine the attitude of broadly defined elites (political, intellectual, artistic, religious, etc.) towards the representatives of different ethnos.
