K SO THE 30 YEARS WAR REMEMBER IT
STARTED IN BOHEMIA IN PRAGUE
BECAUSE THE CATHOLICS AND THE PROTESTANTS
REMEMBER WHEN THEY PUSHED THE PEOPLE OUT THE WINDOW AND STARTED A WAR YEAH THAT WAR.
IT WAS PRETTY MUCH KIND OF A WORLD WAR BECAUSE IT COVERED LIKE ALL OF EUROPE WHICH WAS BASICALLY THE WORLD.
and there was this guy
and he was born in moravia
and it was part of the holy roman empire the hre if you will
SO BOUT TIME 30 YEARS WAR BROKE OUT, JOHN WAS A RICH AND THRIVING SCHOOL TEACHER AND PASTOR WAIT
ok sorry im not funny john wasnt really rich and thriving he was just ok i guess
SO THESE GUYS NAMED THE UNITUS FRATERNUM OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE UNITY OF THE BRETHREN WERE BASICALLY HIS GUYS. WHO WERE ALSO KINDA FOLLOWERS OF JAN HUSS. WHO WAS A REFORMER.
THIS WAS A PROBLEM.
BECAUSE THE HRE WAS CATHOLIC. AND THEIR CHURCH WAS PROTESTANT.
AND WHEN THE 30 YEARS WAR STARTED UH OH BAD THINGS.
tey waz in truble
AND IN 1620 WHEN FERD KICK FRED OFFA THE THRONE OF BOHEMIA, FERD WAS LIKE “HEY GUYS LET’S RUIN EVERYTHING AND MAKE BOHEMIA CATHOLIC”
AND THEN WHOEVER WAS RUILIN’ MORAVIA WAS LIKE “YEAH US TOO”
so for like 7 years johnny boy had to live on the run
and his home was burned to the ground
wait also apparently all his buddies followed him too ok
and while he was on the run he was writing a book????
K DAS COOL I GUESS
no actually thats pretty awesome its hard to write when youre just sitting at home he wrote a whole book man while he was running and in hiding and stuff
BASICALLY EVERYONE GOT FED UP AFTER LIKE 7 YEARS. SO THEY WENT TO POLAND. YES.
and john ~never went back~
bum bum bummm
BUT NOW HE WAS IN POLAND WHICH WAS REALLY NICE AND HE NEVER WENT BACK BECAUSE POLAND WAS PRETTY COOL
also fun notes over half of europe could not read or write so john was like “uh we should make eduicaitoin for errybody”
also any unschoolers here using me as a history curriculum
sigh ok yeah probably not uh
BUT HEY HE THOUGHT UNSCHOOLING WAS AWESOME.
WHICH IS COOL, RIGHT.
even though i have never unschooled i dont care thats cool and so is unschooling even though i probably couldn’t do it sobs because i am a procrastinator and easily distracted
SO JOHN THOUGHT THAT THE ONLY TRUTH WAS GOD’S TRUTH TOO SO HE WAS A CHRISTIAN YEP
AND ENGLAND THOUGHT THAT HE WAS COOL
SO ENGLAND WAS LIKE “GET OVER HERE”
AND JOHN WAS LIKE “K”
so he did
he got over to england
the same time that civil war broke out in england
that’s nice timing isn’t it
WAR KINDA PUTS A HALT TO
you see school kinda takes the back burner whenever you’re trying to not die
JOHN WENT TO SWEDEN AND TUTORED THE QUEEN THERE???
THEN HE WENT TO POLAND??/
and after a few years the whole 30 years war was over
but he wasn’t allowed to go back to moravia for reasons??????
so he chilled with his follower people all over europe
then his wife died uh and he had 4 kids to make sure they were smart
THEN HE WAS LIKE “YAY SWEDISH PROTESTANTS”
AND FOR SOME REASON POLAND WAS LIKE “WE DONT LIKE THE SWEDEN WERE GON BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN”
HE WENT TO AMSTERDAM THEN
AND WROTE SOME MORE
AND IN 1658 HE MADE A TEXT BOOK
WHICH WAS AWESOME BECAUSE KIDS DIDN’T REALLY GET TEXT BOOKS A LOT
AND IT HAD ~PICTURES~
a lot of pictures
SO A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKED THIS I GUESS
AND ENGLAND AND HOLLAND CALLED HIM UP LIKE “HELP WE’RE GON KILL EACH OTHER UNLESS YOU MAKE US NOT”
JOHN WAS LIKE “I GOT DIS I GOT DIS K DONT KILL EACH OTHER THE END”
BUT THEY WERE LIKE “THAT DIDN’T HELP”
apparently they didnt like him
WE’RE GONNA TALK ABOUT THIS LATER OK HOLD YOUR ENGLAND AND HOLLANDS
so his buddies went to herrnhut (actual spelling i guess pronunciation is somethin like HRUAURNAUCHCUCUCHCHUHTHCHT.) and started a revival
SO JOHN WROTE OVER 154 BOOKS.
HE IS CONSIDERED TODAY TO BE THE FATHER OF MODERN EDUCATION. AND HIS FACE IS ON CHEZELVOKOALOLVIAVKAIA’S MONEY. YEP.
