About the Book

A realistic portrayal of the Turkish invasions and their effect on the population's daily lives is brought to light in Volume II of Dimitz' work. Peasant uprisings plagued the region's growth.  The beginnings of the Reformation take root, especially in Laibach (Ljubljana) where most of the nobles and better educated Slovenes lived; Primus Truber, one of the leaders of the Protestant movement, wrote and published the first book in the Slovene language; and the cultural history of the cities is documented regarding trade and industry, mining and land management, law and government, finance, estates and nobility, sanitary matters and humanitarian activity, clergy and religious orders, schools, morality and police, arts, authors, and famous men.
