She lectures at South Bohemian University in České Budějovice and is the general secretary of CARMEN, international network of medievalists. Her primary interest is medieval and early modern visual culture.



As the postdoctoral researcher with the project, Kateřina is charged with the task to select and compare images of saints and Christ from the chosen regions using the Krems Institute’s resources, above all the REALONLINE database. Next to the geography criteria, the images will be categorised by periods of creation and informationthey provide on the dissemination of cult, communication with the saints and community’s construction of identity. She will then continue with assessing the images (groups of images) on both qualitative and quantitave levels.
