The Polish nation possessed, during a thousand years, a larger country than modern France, between the Baltic, the Black Sea, and the Carpathian Mountains. There civilization and learning flourished brighter than elsewhere, in the 15th and 16th centuries, under the free institutions and wise government of the Jagellon dynasty. They sheltered, by their protective shield, numerous families which were persecuted, on account of religious and political freedom, in the rest of Europe. They served as a bulwark against the frequent encroachments of the Asiatic hordes, while Europe wanted to organize herself and develop her civilization and military power. This Polish nation exists no more as a body politic.
