Tadeáš Polanský, Latin: Thaddaeus Polansky, German: Thaddäus Polansky (1713 – 1770) was a Jesuit theologian and scientist in the field of physics.

Life[edit]

Tadeáš Polanský was since 1734 lecturing at a Gymnasium (school) in Uherské Hradiště. Later he became professor of dogmatics at University of Olomouc. Apart from theology, he was, together with Polanský Jan Nepomuk (1723 – 1776), active in the field of physics, researching lightning and thunder, colors, phases of Venus, primary and secondary rainbow, and other.[1] In years 1760 – 1761, Polanský became dean of the University's Faculty of Theology.

He was lecturing in Olomouc at the time when Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor stepped up his fight for absolute power, effectively restricting the Jesuit monopoly in education. At the University of Olomouc, the struggle was taking place particularly between the conservative Jesuits and a proponent of enlightenment ideas Josef Vratislav Monse.

Polanský's book Manudictio sacerdotis ad com-modissime subeundum examen pro approbatione et jurisdictione, printed in 1762, was banned in 1769. Later, in February 1771, a directive explicitly ordered Ausrottung (extermination) of the book, while another one from May 1771 introduced heavy fines for mere possession of the book.[2]
