Languages of publication
Tutors of young noblemen played a fairly important role in the educational process during the Early Modern Age. At the beginning, they acted mainly as teachers, but later on as their charges started to travel for educational purposes their duties broadened, since they had to organize the journeys, secure its material aspects and to generally oversee the young nobleman. The travel journal of one of those tutors – Simon Proxenus a Sudetis (around 1532–1575) – represents a unique source documenting his tutorial practice and a mutual co-existence with his charge – Julius Šlik of Holíč and Pasoun (around 1544–1575) – during his studies in Paris in the period 1563–1564. Although Šlik’s character was difficult to tame and his attitude towards studying rather problematic, Proxenus’s four-year tutorial activity enabled Šlik to obtain a doctor’s degree in law that he could make a good use of upon his return when he took an employment in the office of the counsel for appeals.
