Mahling, Lubina: Pietistic Teacher Education in the Sorbian Part of Lusatia


Lětopis Abstract 2017 1: Mahling, Lubina: Pietistic Teacher Education in the Sorbian Part of Lusatia

The school in Gro▀welka, founded by August Adolph von Below in 1746, and the training college established by Heinrich Ludwig, Count of Dohna, in 1804, are often cited in the literature as the first Sorbian teaching establishments, however without placing in more detail the content and personnel of both institutions. Using a biographical approach, the present study puts the two institutions into the contemporary context placing them between Pietism and public enlightenment, and develops connections between both institutions and the Halle orphanage, the Herrnhut Brotherhood, the pietistic aristocracy of Lusatia and educational reforms in Saxony. Particular attention is given to the significance of both institutions for Sorbian educational and cultural history; both educational establishments trained a large number of people who had a decisive influence on Sorbian religious and cultural life in the transitional period (Sattelzeit) leading to modernity.
