Czech Zone 2: Comenius at 350!
In Czech and English.

Czech play

On the occasion of the 350th anniversary of the death of the 17th century poet, pedagogue, and theologian John Amos Comenius (1592-1670), students of Czech come together with Houghton Library curators to perform dialogues and vignettes in an online montage of words, images, and music. Have you ever wondered what a beehive is and how it works? Why Cotton Mather invited Comenius to lead Harvard College?  

Tune in for a good old allegorical schooling on the hows and whys of the world. The play originally aired on Friday December 4th.
