Kateřina Horníčková studied art history and classical archaeology in Prague and Medieval Studies in Budapest. She wrote her PhD dissertation at the Central European University on church treasures and religious practice in late medieval Bohemia. During her PhD she spent a year studying art history at Oxford University, and worked as curator at Prague Castle Administration. Her research career started in 2009 with a postdoctoral position at Cultures of Knowledge, a project jointly run by Oxford University and the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and with the project Symbols that Bind and Break Communities, studying saints’ cults in medieval and early modern Central Europe at the Institute for Material Culture in Krems (Austria). Within VISCOM, her research focuses on visual representations of religious and urban communities in Austria, Bohemia and Hungary, in particular in urban space, hagiography narratives and post-Hussite visual culture.
