I very much hope you are well in these uneasy times. We feel sad and bit frustrated that all major events planned for this year's Comenius anniversary have been canceled or postponed because of the covid-19 pandemic. Therefore we decided to launch an initiative that would commemorate Comenius in a non-traditional way and at the same time would enable all of us to participate in an online event in a situation when we are prevented from attending personal meetings and academic conferences.
We have decided to organize a 24-hour non-stop public online reading of Comenius's texts on 15 November which is the date of his death 350 years ago. The idea is to bring together at least 96 people who are interested in Comenius as scholars or artists.
I would like to invite you to submit your texts to be published in Volume 7 of our magazine. It will be entitled JOHN AMOS COMENIUS’ PANSOPHIA IN INTERPRETATIONS AND REINTERPRETATIONS BY POLISH AND EUROPEAN COMENIOLOGISTS (2020). After the “journey” Towards comeniology as a science, which enabled us to find many new leads for comeniological research, which inspire us for further research and interpretation, we are approaching pansophia, John Amos Comenius’ philosophy, which all of his writings are imbued with. Despite this fact, pansophia is still an abstract research branch for us, the contemporary dealing with John Amos Comenius’ life and output. It seems that only nowadays, in the 21st century, this idea based upon the message “to teach… everyone… everything about everything.. with all the senses… “ is coming true, mainly thanks to the modern media and their common availability. Comenius kept searching for the harmony of all things. Did he find it?
The subject matter of the volume is correspondent with the 350th anniversary of John Amos Comenius’ death celebrated in Poland, Europe and all over the world. Days of Comenius’ commemoration, conferences and seminars are taking place. The celebrations are certain to enrich the knowledge with new elements and deepen the interpretation of his ideas, including - or maybe first of all – of PANSOPHIA. However, to a large extent it depends on comeniological centres’ good cooperation. Will it be successful in the jubilee years?
Volume 7 of “Siedlce Comeniological Research Bulletin, PEDAGOGY series” is the second year’s accomplishment of the Ministry project Support for scientific magazines. For the first time, the whole process of text submission will take place online on the platform ICI Publishers Panel (see the file “Instructions of how to post an article on the platform ICI Publishers Panel”).
Please accept our sincere thanks and acknowledgements for preparing articles for the volume. It was devoted to the international discussion of comeniology as a science. Its subject matter was the most difficult - so far – and had emerged naturally from the subject matters of the previous volumes, mainly volume four, describing the Polish and European perceptions of John Amos Comenius, and volume five, about the critical interpretation of this controversial figure and his rich output in the CONTEMPORARY period. It could be stated that between 2014 and 2019 we created a unique system of knowledge about John Amos Comenius, his life and writings, and we started an international discussion of comeniology as a science. The publication is interdisciplinary and multilingual.
We present information about comeniological conferences in Europe in the jubilee years of John Amos Comenius (2020-2022):
