Description
   János Csécsi (Tsétsi) was born in Gönc (Abaúj county) on June 11, 1689, the son of the Sárospatak teacher János Csécsi (1650-1708) and of Klára Rajczy. He learned in Kassa (Košice) and Sárospatak, in the latter place he was a teacher in 1707. From 1709 he went to visit foreign academies. He attended philosophy and theology in 1710 in Utrecht and in 1711-12 in Franeker, he visited England, Italy, France and Switzerland. From 1712 he lived in Sárospatak, where he became the successor of his father. He taught Greek, history, church history, Cartesian philosophy, mathematics, physics and astronomy. He came into conflict with two colleagues and the local pastor, and this constant hostility led to grave clashes between the two parties of the school. In 1723-25 an investigating committee was sent out, and finally in 1734 he and a colleague of him were dismissed from the school. After this he lived a lonely life in Sárospatak until his death in June 1, 1769.
