Stanisław Konarski (actual name: Hieronim Konarski; born September 30, 1700 in Żarczyce Duże ndash died August 3, 1773 in Warsaw, Poland) was a Polish pedagogue, educational reformer, political writer, poet, dramatist, Piarist monk and precursor of the Polish Enlightenment.Konarski studied 1725-27 at the Collegium Nazarenum in Rome, where he became a teacher of rhetoric. After that he travelled through France, Germany and Austria to broaden his education.

In 1730 he returned to Poland and began work on a new edition of Polish law, the "Volumina legum".

From 1736 he taught at the Collegium Resoviense in Rzeszów. In 1740 he founded the Collegium Nobilium, an elite Warsaw school for sons of the gentry ("szlachta"). Thereafter he reformed Piarist education in Poland, in accordance with his educational program, the "Ordinationes Visitationis Apostolicae..." (1755). His reforms became a landmark in the 18th-century struggle to modernize the Polish education system.

Early on, Konarski was associated politically with King Stanisław Leszczyński; later, with the Czartoryski "Familia" and King Stanisław August Poniatowski. He participated in the latter's famous "Thursday dinners." Stanisław August caused a medal to be struck in Konarski's honour, with his likeness and the motto, from Horace, "Sapere auso" ("Dare to know!"). Konarski argued very strongly that the right of veto that had traditionally been exercised by the Polish Nobility was not law but a custom. [CathEncy|wstitle=Stanislaus Konarski]

His heart is buried in an urn in the Piarist church in Cracow. His bust can be seen at the entrance to the crypt of this church placed on Świętego Jana Street. [http://forumakad.pl/archiwum/2002/02/images/000_1s.jpg]
