The Slovenian Society (Sln. Slovenska matica) was<br>established in 1864 at the initiative of Maribor “patriots”<br>and through voluntary contributions of intellectuals,<br>traders and entrepreneurs in order to print more<br>demanding works from a wide variety of areas in<br>Slovenian language, raise the level of education and<br>knowledge, create Slovenian terminology in various<br>technical fields, etc. At that time Austria supported the<br>establishment of these types of societies, which is also<br>proven by a personal contribution made by Emperor<br>Franz Joseph to support its establishment. It reached<br>its apex at the beginning of the 20th century, when it<br>issued books in large print runs and maintained contact<br>with universities and academies from London to Saint<br>Petersburg. During the First World War it came into<br>conflict with the authorities because it issued a book on<br>the activities of the Austrian military in annexed Bosnia<br>and its property was confiscated. In the interwar period<br>it continued its work and helped establish the University<br>of Ljubljana and the Slovenian Academy of Arts and<br>Sciences. In 1942 it organized an illegal meeting of the<br>Cultural Plenum of the Liberation Front and in 1944 its<br>operations were terminated once again for publishing<br>books such as the geographic volume Slovenija, this time<br>through a decree by the German administration. After<br>the Second World War it recovered with great difficulty<br>because the new authorities found it too “conservative”<br>and its property was nationalised. However, the opinion<br>prevailed that the Slovenian Society should be preserved<br>and its work subsidised. Today the Slovenian Society is a<br>research and cultural institution which holds conferences<br>on a wide variety of issues in Slovenian science, culture<br>and society, and their future. In addition, it publishes<br>outstanding original works and translations in the<br>humanities and natural sciences.<br><strong>Drago Jančar</strong>
