Religious and didactic aspect in factual literature written by Slovaks living in Romania
Languages of publication
The goal of the paper is to address the continuous existence of Slovak national culture outside the physical borders of the mother land. The readers are introduced into the subject of the complex evolution of the Slovaks living in the Romanian Kingdom/Romania, especially in the first half of the 20th century. The objective and subjective interpretation reflects on the religious and didactic aspect in factual literature written by Slovaks living in Romania by presenting two original writings which had (have) an important role and function in the social – cultural – literary development (i.e. they are a kind of stimuli for the national identity and self-preservation). The study contains particular extracts of the originals or meta-texts written by experts in the given field, which help „illustrate“ the atmosphere of that period as well as the creative stimuli for this national minority within a wider context. The outcome and the contribution of the paper are seen in informing the people interested in the subject of the fact that the Slovak element „has pulsated with life“ not only below the Tatras but also further south.
