Abstract

Bohuslav Hasištejnský of Lobkowitz was a Czech humanist, well known Latin poet, and philosopher. He spent most of his life in his castle Hasištejn (Hassenstein) in Northern Bohemia where he pursued humanist studies. He wrote several philosophical works, among which De miseria humana (VIRI Incomparabilis, ac D. D. BOHVSLAI HASSENSTEYNII LVCVBRATIONES Oratoriae, quarum indicem versa indicabit pagella. Pragae: excvdebant Thomas Mitis, et Iohan. Caper, 1563) is the most significant. Its focus on the immortality of the human soul without reference to resurrection indicates the influence of contemporary Florentine Platonism, specifically Marsilio Ficino’s thought. He also assembled collection of manuscripts and books known as the Bohuslav Hasištejnský of Lobkowitz’ Library in his castle. This library was comparable with the best private libraries in Central Europe of that time.
