"A Humanist on the Frontier explores the remarkable life of Sebastian Ambrosius, a sixteenth-century Lutheran minister and intellectual from Kâesmâark in present-day Slovakia, formerly on the borderland of the Kingdom of Hungary. Through an examination of Ambrosius' publications and correspondence, this book throws new light on the dynamics of urban communities in Upper Hungary, communication within the humanist Republic of Letters in both Central European and wider European networks, and ecclesiastical controversies.
