Primoz Trubar, (Protestant Reformer 1508-1586) was the father of Slovenian language and national identity. Persecuted and exiled to Germany, he continued to develop and write in a standard dialect of the Slovenian peoples. Much of his work, including translating the Bible became the basis for the Slovene identity. We heard an excellent lecture by a Trubar scholar. Today, Trubar is still continued a heretic for his non-conformist, evangelical views. While the Slovene people honor him for his intellectual and cultural contributions they will not talk of his religious convictions. 2017 will mark special recognition of Trubar for his amazing body of work. Evangelicals are organizing now to impact the culture by clearly making mention of his Christian faith so that all will know what motivated him.
