Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the different modalities of enlightened patriotism with regard to the form and art of government, that is, monarchical and republican, which competed in different discourses. It applies a contextualist approach based on the discursive and conceptual analyses of the texts belonging to different genres and written in the aftermath of the Seven Years' War (1756-1763). The chapter focuses on the texts written in German and Latin propagating or rejecting different variations of "monarchical patriotism" in the mid-eighteenth century Habsburg Monarchy, and more specifically in the kingdoms of Bohemia and Hungary-Croatia with a limited comparison of Prussian and Austrian texts on the subject. Special attention is paid to the identification of political languages which featured as discursive domains of enlightened monarchical patriotism along with the vocabulary used by the authors in their argumentation.

Keywords: Bohemia; Hungary-Croatia; mid-eighteenth century Habsburg Monarchy; monarchical patriotism; Seven Years' War
