This monograph offers the analysis of a critical decade in the Bohemian history, embedded in the history of Europe from the Netherlands, through Germany and Italy, to Poland and the Ottoman Empire. This detached view deviates from the “national” history of individual states that was the norm until now. Using the example of mutual interaction between the Bohemian lands and the rest of Europe in the mid-16 th century, it shows new possibilities of interpreting the formation of the complex historical roots of present-day Europe. The basis for this synthesis is mainly economic history, and the connection between large financial transactions and contemporary politics.
