We briefly discussed Baptism and Kings/Queens before and now it is time to move to Golden Age which mostly took place in 16th century. Poland was doing well militarily (Moscow Duchy still too weak to pose a real danger), economically and culturally.
Jan Kochanowski`s poetry has been a great read till today, especially Laments
written after the death of his little daughter, Urszulka.
