Unlike in stereotypical characteristics that regard Pasek as a representative of old-Polish duniwassals, the authoress of the paper sees in him a noble knight, aware of his membership to the community of Western Culture, which is evidenced by a gentiluomo-worthy literary education. Against the up to the present research tradition, she focuses not on the 'Diaries' 'story-telling' elements, but on the regarded as uninteresting rhetorical fragments, replete with Latin interpolations. On the basis of one of the speeches quoted in 'Diaries' the authoress proves that the interpolations in question, being an element of a mixed-language nobility speech, allow to link the temporary situation to a system of values rooted in antiquity to unite all members of 'political nation' of the Polish Republic.
