    This paper deals with the concept of a chosen people or elect nation in the early modern period which has been widely discussed on the examples of the Netherlands and England. A similar phenomenon, however, appeared in east central Europe, most prominently among Hungarian Calvinists but also among Czech non-Catholics. In the first part the author surveys Czech literature on the earlier discourses of chosenness, especially Hussite nationalism and Messianism. In the second part he focuses on the period of the Bohemian revolt, its defeat and the subsequent exile of the Protestants from Bohemia and Moravia which reinforced eschatological and apocalyptic expectations and produced a specific discourse of "defensive chosenness," which used the language of so-called Hebraic patriotism.
