Chapter Summary

In order to depict the phenomenon of patriotism in Poland in the early modern period properly, it is necessary to present it in manifold contexts that are very often related to each other. The author proposes to structure the discussion of the issues connected with patriotism in Poland by presenting a range of contexts within which further deliberations are possible. This chapter concentrates mainly on the development of those concepts that enables one to describe the changing forms of patriotic discourse which took shape in early modern times in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The principal contexts are the philosophical, political, religious and educational. The main concern in the chapter is to clarify the understanding of these conceptions of patriotism and the contexts within which references to the love of fatherland were used in the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
