Jan Kollar, a Slavic scholar and poet, born in N. W. Hungary in 1793, died in Vienna, Jan. 29, 1852. He studied at Presburg and Jena, took orders, and in 1819 became preacher to an evangelical congregation at Pesth. In 1849 he was made professor of archaeology in the university of Vienna. Being a Slovak by birth, he became a champion of the national regeneration of his race, and the most zealous, if not the first, advocate of Panslavism, or of a union, literary and political, of all Slavic tribes. He developed this tendency in poetical works, written mostly in the Czech language, as well as in disquisitions on the antiquities of the Slavs. Among the former are his Basne (" Poems," 1821), Slawy dcera ("The Daughter of Glory"), his most celebrated work, and Narodnie spiewanky (a collection of Slovak "Popular Songs"); among the latter, Rozpra-wy o imenach ("Treatises on the Names" of the ancient Slavs), Slawa bohyni ("Goddess Slava"), "On the Literary Relation of the Slavic Tribes and Dialects " (in German), Cestopis ("A Journey" for antiquarian purposes to northern Italy), and "Ancient Slavic Italy," a work in German, which was published after his death (Vienna, 1853). A complete edition of his Spisy ("Writings") was published in Prague (4 vols., 1860-'65).
