200th anniversary of the birth of Ľudovít Štúr, codifier of the Slovak language, editor and writer (1815-1856)
L’udovít Štúr was a prominent philosopher, historian, writer, linguist and editor, who is considered in Slovakia as the most important figure in the nineteenth-century national revival. He was the codifier of the Slovak language and a promoter of linguistic and cultural identity of the Slavs. His actions in favour of democratic rights, the rights of minorities and freedom of the press across the Austro-Hungarian Empire have contributed to a transnational dimension of his legacy. Furthermore, the regional significance of this personality stems from his activities and works aimed at the promotion of the cooperation and solidarity of the Slavs. L’udovít Štúr also taught the history of the Slavs and their literatures, and published philosophical and other works not only in Slovak, but also in Czech, German and Russian.
