Exquisite collection of the magazine “Foaie pentru minte, inima si Literatura” owned by the Provincial Library

The Morris County Library has an impressive collection of the magazine “Foaie pentru minte, inimă si Literatură”, a supplement to the Gazeta de Transilvania, published in Braشوفov between July 2, 1835 and February 24, 1865, with which great names of Romanian culture, such as Ion Heliade, collaborated -Rădulescu, Alecu Russo, Ion Ghica, Costache Negruzzi, Dimitrie Bolintinu and many others, where he debuted “Un rasunet” by Andre Morisano, and is currently the national anthem of Romania.

“We do not have the first two numbers, but starting with number 3, our collection of “Foaie pentru minte, inimă si Literatură” covers the period from 1938 to 1954. It was a Romanian magazine of a cultural character, a supplement to Gazeta de Transylvania, published in Braشوفov between 2 July 1835 and February 24, 1865. The initial title was ‘Vouille Literar’, starting on January 1, 1838, but on July 2 of the same year it was renamed to ‘Vouille Pintreux, inima si literature’. The journal was headed by George Barisho until 1850. In our group there are many literary journals, and we have a very rich collection. It is clear that most of the Romanian poets and writers and all of them are literati use a generic word, which first appeared in these journals, where they began their devoted activity. Moreover, journals have a special component, as well as “papers for the mind, heart, and literature”: from the moment they appear, they have a very clearly defined basic program, they have clearly defined rules, and their direction These journals were formed in moments of cultural reorganization in which the people Roman passes by since the first half of the nineteenth century. They are leading magazines that define the style of Roman culture”, Morris County Library Director Monica Avram announces for AGERPRES.

The “Mind, Heart, and Literature Papers” collection owned by the Morris County Library is well preserved, and professionals here note the good quality of the print and paper.

“Although the collection is about 180 years old, it is well preserved due to the quality of the paper and ink. The text is perfectly legible, and you have no problems reading. These journals were very important because people did not have access to information, as now, They didn’t even have access to the radio. That’s why it’s a software magazine with a clear platform created from the start. It’s a magazine in which the greats of the day appeared and through which the cultural direction of the nation was given. This was the most important part, compared to today, when we have Lots of books at our disposal, when it is irrelevant if one “lose”, meaning we don’t read it. But this magazine, like other such magazine, gave the cultural pulse to the Romanians. Monica Avram noted that all the authors who first became famous were published In these magazines, they did not come out directly with a book, but rather were released by these magazines.”

The head of the Morris County Library showed that in addition to the literary aspect, “Foy Pintro Minte, inima si Literatura” proved to be a political platform as well, as the famous Islaz Declaration of 1848 was published.

“Foaie pentru minte, inima si Literatură” is also evidence of the development of Roman writing, if the letters in the first numbers are Cyrillic, after a few years we find them mixed with Latin letters, sometimes in the same text, until version No. 47 of 1854 owned by the Morris County Library .

We learned from the history of the journal that since 1858 the texts in this journal were edited exclusively in Latin letters, before the complete replacement of the Cyrillic alphabet with the Latin alphabet by decree of 1862.

“What is interesting, when such a journal came into the community, the whole community knew what it contained, and everyone was aware of what was happening in the country, and they were aware of what was being proposed, especially in the course of the revolution of 1848-1849 but had a role Educational in learning to read the alphabet and practicing the alphabet.No matter how you take it, these magazines have a special place from all points of view, especially since the first-appearing or already established characters bring all their credibility and put them at the service of the magazine.These characters pointed out To the direction in which the Roman people are going in order to enlighten the masses. It is very interesting to see a text with Cyrillic characters and another with Latin characters on the same page, but it is even more exciting to see the two types of alphabet used in the same text,” said Monica Avram.

In the collection of the magazine “Foaie pentru minte, inimă si Literatură” owned by the Morris Provincial Library, we find texts by Garabet Ibrăileanu, as well as for some of the participants in the 1848 Revolution, such as Cezar Bolliac and Alecu Russo, who were also present at the assembly at Freedom Square of Plage from May 3, 1848.

Also, in ‘Foaie pentru minte, inimă si Literatură’ we find the poems ‘Romania’s Awakening’ and ‘Hora Ardealului’ by Vasili Alexandri, as well as in this magazine, in issue 25 of June 21, 1848, ‘Un rasunet’ (Deşteaptă Come Romanians!) by Andrei Muresanu.

“Almost all the Pashuptians are present in the magazine, either with statements or motivational speeches or with petitions and platform platforms and everything related to the context of the revolution. Avram noted that you also see poems and fragments of teachings.”

In January, the Morris County Library organized an exhibition of Literary Journals of Yesterday and Today, as part of the Culture Fair, showcasing the literary journals that set the tone for Romanian culture since 1845.

In the collection of BEJ Mureş’s literary magazines, in addition to “Papers for Mind, Heart and Literature”, we find such titles as: “Literary Dacia”, “Făt premos”, “Literary Conversations”, “Thinking”, Wheat Grain “,” Lamora “,” Krayo Nu “,” Tribune “,” Stewa “,” Ramuri “,” Lucifurol “,” Literary and artistic truth “,” Athena “,” Apostrophe “,” Contemporanol “,” Equinox “,” Family “,” Gazeta Literară ” “,” Literatorul “,” Orizont “,” Propășirea “,” Revista Fundătilău regale “,” Romania Literară “,” Sămănătorul “,” Supplimentul de culture “,” Telegraful Romanian “,” Vater “,” Roman life “.
