Arnošt of Pardubice

Ernst of Pardubitz - gravestone in Assumption Church in Kłodzko, Poland

Arnošt z Pardubic (German: Ernst von Pardubitz; English: Ernest of Pardubice) (25 March 1297 probably in Glatz - 30 June 1364 in Raudnitz) was the first Archbishop of Prague. He was also an advisor and diplomat to Emperor Charles IV.

Ernst inherited the town of Pardubice in 1340. He became the bishop of Prague on 14 January 1343 and was commissioned the first Archbishop of Prague on 30 April 1344.[1] He ordered the monks to contribute to the newly founded Charles University (14th century), hence enhancing the quality of the education in the institution.
