    AnnotationThrough the analysis of Renaissance Humanism in Olomouc, the most general aim of the paper is to show how the fact that historians represented certain past 'events' as cultural transmissions relates to the politics of 19th and 20th century cultural identities. In this case, it is examined how 'Renaissance Humanism' was understood as a transmission of civilizational values from Western Europe (most often from Italy) to Central Europe. Using the example of Augustinus Olomucensis as the chief 'apostle' of Olomouc humanism, the author shows how the transmission of humanist education to Olomouc is described in historical works in the mid-nineteenth century. The following questions are crucial to her approach: When did historians begin to conceptualise Renaissance Humanism in Olomouc as cultural transmission? How did they describe this transmission and its key players (above all Augustinus)? The second set of questions covers the issue of how the use of the category 'transmission' can be related to the values and ideologies of the communities that produced this knowledge about history. Finally, the share is discussed they may have had in shaping 19th and 20th century cultural identities.
