ETICKÝ ROZMER REFLEXIE VEĽKOMORAVSKÉHO OBDOBIA V SLOVENSKEJ LITERATÚRE NA KONCI 18. STOROČIA
(The Ethical Dimension of the Reflection of the Great Moravian Period in the Slovak Literature at the End of the 18th Century)
Abstract: In the Slovak literature of National Revival, the authors writing in this period search for the historical, cultural, literary and linguistic roots of the Slovaks. The period of the Great Moravia is therefore reflected as a constituent period of Slovak history, Svätopluk being „the Slovak king“, Constantine and Methodius being the „Slovak apostles“, as can be seen mainly in the works written by Juraj Fándly (especially in his homily and in Compendiata historia gentis Slavae). During the period of National Revival, authors highlighted the national moment, but also the ethical dimension of history in identifying the exemplary characteristics and behavior of the Great Moravian personalities. The purpose of writing about the past is to influence the present, the actualizing dimension being manifested in a national and ethical interpretation of historical events.
