dc.description.abstractThe article presents German pamphlets originating in Lusatia, dedicated to the devastating fire that destroyed the town of Görlitz in March, 1691. The tragedy was a milestone in the history of the town and it was an opportunity to look back and evaluate the history from the current perspective. The importance of the event as the „point of historic memory“ was strengthened by the fact that a catastrophe of the same kind was, in legend, the reason for the founding of the town by Přemyslid duke of Bohemia Soběslav. The authors of these multi-paged pamphlets were mostly the citizens of Görlitz who lived at a time when the town was no longer royal town of King of Bohemia, instead it was a part of the Saxony electorate. The history of their town was a source of inspiration and pride for them and gave them strength to rebuild their hometown for the better. The author deals with the content and social context of these pamphlets, paying special attention to the reflexive passages about the Luxembourgs, John of Görlitz and the Görlitz Duchy.en_US
