Title: Ob remedium animae nostrae. Motívy spásy v najstarších donačných listinách pre uhorské benediktínske kláštory

(Ob remedium animae nostrae. Motives of salvation in the oldest charters of donations for Hungarian Benedictine monasteries)

Abstract: The study examines motives of salvation, which were noticed in charters of foundations of Benedictine monasteries, later in charters that recorded donations for monks of these monasteries in medieval Kingdom of Hungary from 11th to 13th century. In the work, I deal with textual variants that concern the motives of redemption of the donor´s souls, the content of devout donations and finally the historical background and circumstances under which the rulers, clergy and nobility came to a decision to endow a monasteries. In less numerous sources from the 11th century, rather generally formulated motives of salvation appear, followed by data on the content of donations. Since the beginning of the 12th century, the sources have given an insight into the broader historical context of formation of these pious motives.
