More reading: Wikipedia Article

The Academia Operosorum Labacensium (Academy of the Industrious Residents of Ljubljana) - a forerunner of the modern Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts - was founded in Ljubljana in 1693 as an association of 23 scholars. Most of the members which included 13 lawyers, six theologians, and four medical doctors, were of Slovene ethnicity. The newly-founded library became an important centre of activity for the "Operosi". The Operosi were very influential in the development of the arts in Ljubljana and throughout the Slovene cultural area. The members of the Academia adopted the Latin name apes (bees) and the academic tag Nobis atque aliis - operosi. Every year they would organise an annual meeting, as well as four other academic meetings, where they discussed their research. Its purpose from the beginning was to organise scientific work in the fields of law, medicine, philosophy and theology. In 1701, the academy was merged with the Academia incoltorum (Academy of Fine Arts) and Academia philharmonicorum (Academy of Music). At the time of its greatest activity, around 1714, it was an international association of 42 members from Carniola and the counties of central Austria assembled under the patronage of the bishop Franz Karl von Kaunitz. It fell into decline in the summer of 1725, but was revived in 1781, thanks to the efforts of Slovene Enlightenment figures. Unfortunately, it was only active for another 20 years or so and thereafter declined again because the members' outlooks and expectations were too much at variance.

Located at 46.05, 14.51 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 0 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

The Roman Catholic Metropolitan Archdiocese of Ljubljana is an ecclesiastical territory or diocese of the Roman Catholic Church in Slovenia. The archdiocese's motherchurch and thus seat of its archbishop is the Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Ljubljana; it also contains minor basilicas in Brezje and Stična. The current Archbishop of Ljubljana, and thus Primate of Slovenia, is His Excellency Anton Stres, having been appointed by Pope Benedict XVI on 28 November 2009. From 811, the territory of the Ljubljana Archdiocese was part of the ecclesiastical territory of the Patriarch of Aquileia. Frederick III, Holy Roman Emperor, erected on 6 December 1461 the Diocese of Laibach, which was confirmed six months later, on 6 September 1462, by Pope Pius II. Several days later, it was taken from the jurisprudence of the Aquileia and directly subjected to the Holy See. On 3 March 1787, it became an archdiocese and a metropolis, which it remained until 1807, when it was for political reasons degraded to a common diocese. The diocese was again elevated to a metropolis on 22 December 1961. Today it has two suffragan sees, Koper (since 1977) and Novo Mesto (since 2006). It is the primatial see of Slovenia; one living former archbishop, Franc Rode, CM, was promoted to a Curial office (Prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life) and made a Cardinal, demonstrating the importance of this archdiocese and its archbishops.
