Languages of publication
This paper contributes to elaborating the issue of Slovak political thinking in the 2nd half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. It focuses on one of the less known personalities in the Slovak politics and Church – Jur Janoška (1856-1930). The author analyses three dominant features of his activities in self-preservation of the nation: 1) Educational policy in the time of expansive denationalisation policy of the Hungarian government at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. 2) The outcomes of his endeavours to reform the Church policy. 3) His political activities at the time of the emergence of the Czechoslovak Republic. By way of conclusion the author states that J. Janoška, despite a remarkable trace having been left by him in the Slovak Evangelical Church and in the field of the protection of national self-interests and public policy, was sensitive to the discrepancy between the aims set for himself in his religious vocation and public performance and the way he managed to follow them. In his search for moral perfection, spiritual maturity, and civil honesty he is inspiring even in these days, full of maladies of morals and values.
