Treatises about the subterranean world in Ljubljana between 1678 and 1773
Južnič Stanislav - (31/2,2002)
We researched the books, papers, and manuscripts about the subterranean and karst phenomena available in Ljubljana in the time of Jesuit college. We used the data from Mayr's book catalogue of 1678. We analyzed the books in the Jesuit and other Ljubljanese libraries. For the first time in historiography the special concern was put on published works and manuscripts of the Ljubljanese Jesuits. We described how the knowledge accumulated in Ljubljana paved the way for pioneering karstology research in the last quarter of the 18th century.
