Chapter 1

1. K. Sternberg, Leben des Grafen Kaspar Sternberg, 35.

2. Goethe, Collected Works (Volume Four), 28.

3. This view was subsequently adopted by non-Czech historians as well. Robert Kann and R. W. Seton-Watson, although not being quite so explicit, repeated the view that the nobility was unreservedly reactionary and ultimately responsible, along with the Habsburgs, for the period of “darkness” after 1620. There have been attempts to reevaluate the role of the nobility, along with other national issues. See in particular Agnew, “Noble Natio,” 50–71; Rak, Bývali Čechově; and Melville, Adel und Revolution.

4. This is also true of the Austrian nobility and their access to privilege and power. See MacHardy, War, Religion, and Court Patronage.
