Anton Martin Slomšek (1800–1862),
Slovenian bishop, author, promoter of Slovenian culture, especially distinguished for reviving Slovenian national
identity in eastern Slovenia and Carinthia. Pope John Paul II. beatified him in 1999.
The Three Sermons on Language by A. M. Slomšek were written between 1825 and 1841. Two of the texts are
preserved in the author's manuscript. The manuscript of the third, best known text, has been lost, but was
published twice soon after it had been written and was subsequently often cited and published in part. The
three texts are linked by their common theme. The texts are the speaker's notes for sermons, formulated
entirely as complete text, thus belonging to the literary genre of religious oration, more precisely sermon
or rhetorical prose.
The electronic edition comprizes a foreword, facsimiles, diplomatic and critical transcriptions, and
editorial notes. Each transcription is linked to the facsimiles, and the two transcriptions are aligned at
the level of lines. This enables the parallel display of facsimile and each transcription, and the parallel
display of facsimile and both transcriptions. Slomšek's references to biblical sources in the margins of the
sermons are linked to the Web portal Biblija.net, where his
translation of biblical fragments can be compared with the translations of the Bible into Slovene.
