In 1903, a number of articles were published which criticized Archbishop Kohn. One exception appeared, however, when Josef Svatopluk Machar criticized his opponents. Theodor Kohn resigned in Rome in 1904 and then settled in Ehrenhausen (Steiermark). J. S. Machar visited Kohn in Ehrenhausen in 1909. This visit did not remain unnoticed and aroused the interest of the Archdiocese of Olomouc and of the Holy See in Rome. Machar promised to publish nothing about this visit and about Kohn, “except from the perspective of history”. He released his reminiscences of Kohn in 1927.
