Languages of publication
The drama activities carried out in the period 1759–1781 on school stage of the Basilian College of Buchach helped to transfer the standards applied in the Enlightenment era to the gentry at the periphery of the former Polish Republic. The Enlightenment trends were evidenced by the observed tendencies in building theatre repertoires. Undoubtedly, the Basilian monks made use of the oeuvre of Jesuit and Piarist stages. Following the Enlightenment ideals, they attempted to impart civic and moralizing significance to the performances, in line with the slogan “teaching by entertaining”.
