OBVINENIE Z KORUPCIE: NÁSTROJ POLITICKÉHO BOJA V RÁMCI SLOVENSKÉHO NÁRODNÉHO HNUTIA ZAČIATKOM 20. STOROČIA
Corruption accusations: a means of political warfare within the Slovak National Movement at the beginning of the 20th Century
Languages of publication
The corruption in any possible manifestation is a phenomenon that seems to be inherent in the development of human societies. That applies also to the nascent Slovak political Catholicism that was confronted with the vice of corruption even in its early days. The study highlights the corruption affair of 1911 and the entanglement of Florián Tománek, Catholic priest and editor of the newspaper “Slovenské ľudové noviny” (Slovak People’s News) and one of the closest allies of Andrej Hlinka. New findings that are based on a detailed analysis of the press at that time and which are supplemented by fundamental research in archives will cast light on local corruption before the First World War and will highlight its mechanisms that were part of the power struggle in Slovakia.
