ĽUDOVÍT ŠTÚR AND THE BEGINNINGS OF THE FORMATION OF THE GENERATION OF YOUNG SONS OF SLOVAKIA
Languages of publication
The author gives a survey of Ľ. Štúr’s youth. Štúr was the leading personality in the Slovak national liberation movement, as well as the leader in the formation of the new patriotic generation in the second half of the 1830s. The author investigates the social and political atmosphere which characterized the Habsburg Monarchy at that time. It was under the strong influence of revolutionary Young Europe, Polish enthusiasm and the activities of Polish and other Slavonic associations in Vienna. The author shows how they influenced Slovak students at the Bratislava secondary school which subsequently became the centre of the Slovak national movement. At the end of the 30s these young people discussed basic problems and were looking for solutions, which took place in the following decades. Special attention has been given to the idea of Slavonic mutual cooperation within the Monarchy, which found its reflection in the Slovak national revival.
