The study describes the endeavour of the Archbishop of Olomouc Josef Karel Matocha (1888-1961) during the preparation of the Czech university textbooks of theology and its context in the course of history. In this way it discovers the concept and the method of theology that was considered desirable during the years 1949-1950 by the local Church and also by the circle of the academics who were respected as the representatives of the 'sacred sciences' at that time. From this point of view it is necessary to understand the study as a part of a wider prolegomena in the history of the Bohemian catholic theology in the second half of the 20th century.
