Stanisław Konarski Born September 30, 1700(1700-09-30) Żarczyce Duże, Poland Died August 3, 1773(1773-08-03) (aged 72) Warsaw, Poland Occupation Poet, dramatist Stanisław Konarski (actual name: Hieronim Konarski; born September 30, 1700 in Żarczyce Duże, Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship – died August 3, 1773 in Warsaw, Poland) was a Polish pedagogue, educational reformer, political writer, poet, dramatist, Piarist monk and precursor of the Polish Enlightenment. 1765 medal with likeness of Stanisław Konarski and motto, from Horace, "Sapere auso" ("Dare to know!"). Konarski studied 1725-27 at the Collegium Nazarenum in Rome, where he became a teacher of rhetoric. After that he travelled through France, Germany and Austria to broaden his education. In 1730 he returned to Poland and began work on a new edition of Polish law, the Volumina legum. From 1736 he taught at the Collegium Resoviense in Rzeszów. In 1740 he founded the Collegium Nobilium, an elite Warsaw school for sons of the gentry (szlachta). He founded the first public-reference library on the European mainland in 1747 in Warsaw. Thereafter he reformed Piarist education in Poland, in accordance with his educational program, the Ordinationes Visitationis Apostolicae... (1755). His reforms became a landmark in the 18th-century struggle to modernize the Polish education system. Early on, Konarski was associated politically with King Stanisław Leszczyński; later, with the Czartoryski "Familia" and King Stanisław August Poniatowski. He participated in the latter's famous "Thursday dinners." Stanisław August caused a medal to be struck in Konarski's honour, with his likeness and the motto, from Horace, Sapere auso ("Dare to know!"). Konarski argued very strongly that the right of veto that had traditionally been exercised by the Polish Nobility was not law but a custom.[1] His heart is buried in an urn in the Piarist church in Cracow. His bust can be seen at the entrance to the crypt of this church placed on Świętego Jana Street.[2] References ^  "Stanislaus Konarski". Catholic Encyclopedia.
