This is a continuation of the debate on approaches to publishing editions of Early Modern Czech literature. The author responds to Jan Malura‘s review of an edition of the Baroque this article considers Velký život Krista, a Czech edition of Leben Christi, Baroque verse by Martin von Cochem (1634–1712) (Česká literature, 2009/2), and thus continues the debate on the format of accompanying material of editions of Early Modern Czech literature, for example, explanatory notes. Miloš Sládek rejects Malura‘s reproaches, describes this Cochem edition as one of several possible ways of compiling editions of Early Modern Czech literature. For example, he rejects Malura’s call for the publication of anthologies of selections instead of whole Baroque texts. Similarly, Sládek does not believe it most suitable in a preface to stress the composition of a work at the expense of placing the text in its context of time and place.
