About the Author and Translator
Bernard Bolzano: A New Evaluation of His Thought and His Circle is a valuable contribution which helps to gain a better understanding of the foundations of the Catholic modernist movement and place it within the European historical context.— Rudolf Grulich, director of the Institute for Church History of Bohemia-Moravia-Silesia
This book represents a welcome contribution to the broader study of the Enlightenment in Central Europe. It adds a deeper understanding of the intellectual legacy of the Catholic Enlightenment in its late phase and contributes new facts and a new perspective for understanding the Czech spiritual environment of the first half of the nineteenth century while at the same time carefully enlightening Bolzano's thought and circle.— Rudolf Svoboda, University of South Bohemia
