Spiritual Children of Fribourg: Lithuanians at the University of Fribourg and Their Importance for Lithuania

Spiritual Children of Fribourg: Lithuanians at the University of Fribourg and Their Importance for Lithuania: Catalogue. Compiled by Kamilė Jagėlienė. Vilnius: Bažnytinio paveldo muziejus, 2019, 112 p.

The significance of the University of Fribourg for the formation of Lithuanian statehood is beyond doubt. It was one of the most important hubs attracting Lithuanian Catholic intellectuals, priests and lay people alike. Here they began to crystallise their ideas and make international contacts, and it was in Switzerland where they became actively involved in building the modern state of Lithuania.

The exhibition “Spiritual Children of Fribourg: Lithuanians at the University of Fribourg and Their Importance for Lithuania” held at the Church Heritage Museum of the Vilnius Archdiocese and the University of Fribourg is the first attempt to present for the public the intellectual activity of Lithuanians who studied at the Catholic University of Fribourg in the late 19th and the first half of the 20th century and their importance for the fledgling modern state of Lithuania through the activity of the Rūta–Lituania student society and related artefacts.

The catalogue is published in Lithuanian and English.
