A Book of the Coetus. A Bible Donation in the History of the Sárospatak Reformed College
A Book of the Coetus. A Bible Donation in the History of the Sárospatak Reformed College A student of the college named above was Daniel Samarjai who began his higher studies on June 24. 1622, and died on 5 August in the same year. When he fell seriously ill in his will he bestowed his Latin Bible, edited by S. Pagninus and Th. Beza, published presumably in 1614, on the student body, i. e. coetus, to be read at the daily services. As it is demonstrated in this study, the word school had a totally different meaning in the earlier centuries than it has in our days, i. e. the traditional latin name, coetus, covered the community of successive generations educated in accord with protestant spirituality.
