This monography deals mainly asylum law. The history of asylum is very important for understanding contemporary asylum issues, however the focus of asylum historians, intense as it is, is mainly aimed at recent asylum history – in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. The aim of this thesis was primary to show the history of asylum in preceding times, before the Vienna Congress and the 1848 revolutions, to point out the various forms of asylum law in this era and to try to answer the question of continuity of development of asylum law in its historical context. The main focus of the thesis is asylum law of the above period in Czech lands, its legislative bases in the forms of statutes and treaties and its implementation in practice as shown by historical sources.
