Literary Activity of Reverend Stanisław Kujot
Languages of publication
Rev. Stanisław Kujot (1845–1914), the father of the Polish Pomeranian historiography, the author of many publications concerning the history of Eastern Pomerania and the distinguished president of the Scientific Society in Toruń, also dealt with literature. As a teacher (1872–1893) of general history and the history of literature in Collegium Marianum in Pelplin he was a successful writer of popular novels, short stories for common people and one dramatic text. The historical, social and religious-moral themes of his works were to popularize educational-pedagogical contents, which were to shape the religious and national consciousness. The works promoted the ideas expressed by the priest during sermons and confessions and during his didactic-research activity. His texts have clear ideological messages which focus on a few key issues: the popularization of historical-national ideas, the problem of the struggle between the good and evil, the culture-forming role of the Church, the promotion of conventional teaching based on religious premises.
