Conservation is a respected comprehensive interdisciplinary branch perceived in majority as a practical activity; however, its essence is a value formation of society. And that understanding of the branch in the whole society context is the main intention of the subject, which is limited in the form of lectures. In the framework of an overview expressing the branch scope there is an effort to present new topics or their interpretation (the specificity of the restoration in the context of the branch, the relation of conservation care and science, the role of information in the field, etc.). Course graduates should be able to understand the basic points of conservation, to interpret the branch development and to infer of its key factors, to be able to characterize and classify the structure of the heritage, to apply the specialized terminology, to understand the basis of the branch methodology, and especially to be able to analyze and use the category of heritage value and to understand the principles of authenticity, to explain the general principles of practical conservation, to understand the organization, legislation and the fundamentals of the economy and management of conservation in the Czech Republic, to understand the international context of the realization of the branch and compare them, to understand the basic specificity of restoration in the cultural heritage conservation (methodology, legislation, organization) and to be knowledgeable in the process of decision making of the restoration intervention in our state conservation system. Finally, the aim of the course is to build positive attitudes towards the value of cultural heritage and positive motivation to their conservation by through the application of the own critical thinking. The themes and content of the lectures are partially updated and adapted to the expected audience every year. Some topics are addressed with the active involvement of students, lectures are accompanied by a projection of image illustrations, the students receive the digests of the lectures. Complementary supplement to the course should be mainly the subject of museology.
