The article deals with beggars in Slovenia in the second half of the 19th and early 20th centuries. It describes to what extent and in which ways themes related to beggars appeared in some Slovene newspapers. The article focuses inparticular on texts referring to the attitude to beggars, the responsibilities of the local communities for the care of beggars, proposals to restrict marriage between them, and their dying. The image created by the newspapers is partly compared to the historical and ethnological literature and sources on beggars in the period under study.
