Slovakia, Lutheran Theology in.

1. The Reformation spread to Slovakia in M. Luther's lifetime and there continued through the 16th and 17th c. largely to mirror the thought prevalent in Ger.

2. Jan Kollár (1793–1852; b. Mosovce, W Slovakia; educ. Pressburg [Bratislava] and Jena, Ger.; pastor Pest [now part of Budapest]; prof. Vienna 1849; poet), M. M. Hodza,* and Karol Kuzmány (Karel; Karl; Carl; 1806–66; b. Brezno, cen. Slovakia; educ. Jena, Ger.; pastor Banska Bystrica [Neusohl]; prof. Vienna; hymnist) were influenced by Hegelian idealism. The most significant 19th c. theol. figure was J. M. Hurban.* JP
