Baltazar was extremely gifted, he was educated in Zagreb, Vienna and Bologna, and after he became a doctor of philosophy and theology, he performed various duties. Among others, he was a Zagreb canon and rector of the Croatian College in Vienna.
With his ideas and open criticism, this great clergyman and intellectual vigorously advocated for reforms in all areas of education, economy and administrative organization, with a special emphasis on the education of youth in a reformist spirit.
