Europe – Legacy of the Humanists

Documentary exhibition marking Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union

Modern Europe and its neighbouring countries are based on ideas and values that were formed and established during the era of Renaissance and the great humanists. The “Europe – Legacy of the Humanists” exhibition presents not only well-known scholars and thinkers who lived between the 15th and 18th centuries, but also less renowned humanists and their female counterparts working in the shadow of their contemporaries. All these influential characters, their concepts and values had a lasting effect on today's Europe and the ideals of the European Union. The exhibition can be considered as a ‘who’s who’ of names that take credit for the birth of European values.

EU countries included in the exhibition:
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, UK, Germany, France, Greece, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Czech Republic, Sweden, Poland, Portugal, Croatia, Romania, Slovakia, Cyprus, Lithuania, Switzerland and Slovenia.

The texts about the Slovenian representatives have been authored by Prof. Dr. Marko Štuhec, whose choice includes an extremely famous humanist and a lesser-known one, Primož Trubar and Avguštin Prygl.
