“Code of Tumas ” is an effort to show the well-known events and processes of history through the eyes of a direct person with a subjective and emotional look. Letters, publicism, all creations of Juozas Tumas-Vaižgantas, also memories of his contemporaries make this reconstruction possible.

Tumas is a prominent character who can be very angry and cheerful, and also have a great joy. Insufficiency of hypocrisy, selfishness and negligence allows us to think of a solid value backbone – and this is one of the reasons why it is worth talking about this person today. And also, he is sensitive to the needy, and not only the daily bread, even more, the culture. His personality in general embodies the idea that a modern state is first and foremost a cultural project (the idea today is even more actual). His posture attracted sincere and dedicated people, and the hypocrites and people naughty by nature were angry and annoyed by him. Respect for the freedom of conscience of each person has earned him the title of pastor of the atheists, but his value orientations undoubtedly grow from the Christian roots, and loyalty to them is dramatic in a more and more secular society. Unmotivated by his self-rigorous position, not stoppable as a voice of conscience, an inexhaustible negotiator between indissoluble positions, Tumas is first and foremost a free person whose adaptation to requirements of force policy or materialistic deduction is simply unacceptable, and expresses him in this surprising manner – with a little regard for things considered by many serious and seriously talking about those small things that “big” people do not even notice at times.
