This paper aims to identify the circumstances in which bishops of Prague were appointed (from the 970s to the 1030s), particularly the first bishop Dietmar, in the context of the incorporation of the Bohemian Church into the Church of the Holy Roman Empire and the subordination to the Archbishop of Mainz. There has been an ongoing debate in current historiography over who selected candidates for the position of bishops: the Bohemian duke or the German ruler, who granted investiture.
The second half of the fifteenth century saw the growing importance of the magnates of Wielkopolska, supported by King Casimir the Jagiellon, who sought a counterbalance to the hitherto leading role of the nobles of Małopolska. This was the beginning of lasting political and property careers of a number of families from Wielkopolska.

In this article we focus on the question of the national identity of a famous adventurer and traveller Count Mauritius August Benyovszky (Polish: Beniowski, 1746-1786). Despite the fact that Benyovszky was born in present-day Slovakia and he sometimes described himself as a Pole, his national identity could not be labelled as either Slovak or Polish.

The article covers the DVP arguments over the idea of great coalition. Gustav Stresemann, party chairman, was a proponent of that idea, and he pushed towards the formation of a coalition binding SPD, DVP and Center in 1923 and 1928. However, cooperation with SPD caused friction with the right wing of DVP, which had links with heavy industry.
