Panorthosia (Universal Reform) is the essential theme of John Amos Comenius's famous Consultation on the Reform of Human Affairs, and chapters 19-26 represent its climax. In this volume is presented the first English translation of this major work of Comenius, which was lost from about 1672 until 1934 when the Latin scholars of Czechoslovakia had it edited for publication in Prague in 1960
