The theological thinking of Lajos Csíky

Tárkányi István Attila: The theological thinking of Lajos Csíky. Kolozsvár: Kolozsvári Protestáns Teológiai Intézet, 2019. 52 pp. Szaktanár: Visky Sándor Béla.

In this short study I present the life and work of Lajos Csíky (1852-1925), a professor of practical theology in Debrecen from the final quarter of the 19th century. He has studied abroad, in Scotland and Switzerland and after his return to Hungary he managed to put in practice all of his vast knowledge in the service of the Gospel. Hungary at that time was dominated by the Western European liberal theology and Csíky belonged to the second generation of church intellectuals which organized a counter-offensive against this anti-orthodox teaching.
