Opera Operosorum

In 1693, Academia operosorum Labacensium or Academy of the Working Citizens of Ljubljana was founded following the example of Italian scientific academies. Its initiators were historian and lawyer Joannes Gregorius Thalnitscher, and the cathedral provost Joannes Baptista Preschern. They also drew the majority of prominent educated citizes of the time into membership. The most important members of the Academy were: chair dean and the founder of the Seminary library Joannes Antonius Thalnitscher, the states counsel Joannes Stephanus Floriantschitsch, jurists Franciscus Erasmus Hohenwart, Goeorgius Andreas Gladitsch, and Joannes Georgius Hozhevar, president of the provincial court Joannes Bertoldus Höffer, and doctors Marcus Gerbezius, Joannes Andreas Coppini and Joannes Baptista Werloschnig. They devoted heir attention to literature, local historical studies, science, and art. At the initiative of the academics, Academia philharmonicorum, Academia incultorum and a branch of the Roman Arcadia, Academia Emonia, were also founded. The Academy ceased after the death of Joannes Gregorius Thalnitscher in 1725. 

The collection presents a selection of works by the Academy members from the National and University Library's collections, which were suitable for digitization.
