Chapter Summary

Laskai's translation came out in 1641, at a time when Lipsian neo-Stoicism had already enjoyed a wide reception in Hungary and had impacted on the very definition of patriotism. It thus recorded rather than defined the characteristics of Hungarian Lipsianism. In Hungarian there is a difference between the term for the country as a territorial unit and the term for "patria". The language of patriotism thus connected loyalty to the patria, political legitimacy and religious piety by transferring the terminology of religious piety to the formulation and forms of loyalty to one's country, owed by both subjects and rulers. Pious patriotism was an idiom in which duties towards one's patria were of the same nature as duties owed to God.

Keywords: Hungarian political thought; Laskai's translation; Lipsius; pious patriotism; religious piety
