    Catholic priest, language researcher, writer, publisher, and mastermind of the religious and cultural life in Slovakia, Andrej Ľudovít Radlinský (born July 8, 1817 in Dolný Kubín – died April 26, 1879 in Kúty) was determined to improve and raise the importance of the Slovak language and nation throughout his life. An extraordinary organisational ability, foresight and strong-mindedness were his excellent characteristics. He tirelessly pursued the establishment of the Slovak language as the language of instruction in primary and secondary schools. Together with Ján Palárik, he promoted a Slovak academy in Hungary. He advocated and published mass media publications in Slovak.
