The Czech Out book series tells stories about everything and everyone Czech, from Bohemian landmarks to notable figures. In this specific edition, we are looking at John Amos Comenius (Czech: Jan Amos Komenský). John Amos Comenius was a Czech philosopher, pedagogue and theologian from the Margraviate of Moravia. He served as the last bishop of Unity of the Brethren and became a religious refugee and one of the earliest champions of universal education, a concept eventually set forth in his book Didactica Magna. He is considered the father of modern education. This collection engages, entertains, and educates readers about the rich and fascinating history of the Czech Republic. Each book in the Czech Out series is loaded with fun illustrations and facts which will take young and old readers alike along on real journeys and inspire them to learn more about one of the most extraordinary places on earth: The Czech Republic!
