History of the institution

The Institute of Auxiliary Historical Sciences of Masaryk University's Faculty of Arts was originally part of the history department. Teaching was first carried out by Václav Vojtíšek, and then Václav Hrubý from 1925. This was later taken over by Jindřich Šebánek and auxiliary historical sciences became part of archive studies, which became a separate department from 1949. The Auxiliary Historical Sciences Department has been in operation since 1991 to provide training for demanding editorial work. The department's original focus on Přemyslid diplomacy has gradually been expanded to include other topics (codicology, epigraphy, Modern Age diplomacy, the history of administration and imperial diplomacy).
