Description

No history of Lithuania would be complete without mentioning the exceptional clergymen who took care of the nation’s people: the priests who smuggled books during the tsarist regime’s ban on Lithuanian books in Latin script, and the priests of the generation of volunteers, who guarded Lithuania’s native language, nurtured the nation’s literature and inspired Lithuanians to work for the benefit of their homeland. Many of these men were recognised by the Church and appointed prelates or canons, and were members of the diocesan cathedrals. This book recounts the contribution made by these outstanding people to the history of the nation.
