Harant was a diplomat and composer as well as a traveller. He set out on his journey to the Holy Land in 1598 and travelled for over a year, following the familiar route via Venice, Corfu, Zante, Methoni, Cerigo and Cyprus. The numerous woodcuts depict costumes, many after Nicolay, as well as genre scenes, botanical and zoological subjects, and views and plans. He converted to Protestantism and joined the forces of the Bohemian States in the uprisings against the Catholic forces. In 1621 he was executed together with other Bohemian nobles by the Austrians for his participation in the battle of White Mountain.
