In the fifties and sixties the name of Jan Patocka was to be found amongst the editors and translators of Comenius' Latin writings. His planned collaboration with the editors of the collected publication of 'J. A. Comenii Opera omnia' - the Work of J. A. Comenius was however stopped for political reasons, and his report recommending the publication of the 14th volume of this edition could not be used in the beginning of the seventies since giving his name as 'specialist editor' was not thought desirable. In the second half of the seventies his name was no longer allowed to even appear in the index of names.
