Julie Nováková a komeniologie
JULIE NOVAKOVA AND COMENIUS STUDIES
Languages of publication
The focal point of Julie Nováková’s comeniological activities consists in the editing of Comenius’ Latin writings and in uncovering the characteristics of his Latin and style. She introduced precision of textual criticism into comeniology, an emphasis on philological interpretation of the text and the observation of the “ad fontes” principle. What is definitely of lasting value in her contribution to comeniology is the approach to editing based on painstaking investigation of the edited text as well as the author, his language and style. However, future generations of comeniologists will have to come to terms with the results of her other research activities, too.
