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