Manuscript heritage of Faustyn Ciecierski as a source to the history of the intellectual culture of Dominicans from the Lithuanian province of the beginning of the 19th century
Languages of publication
Faustyn Ciecierski, a Vilnius-based Dominican brother, left an interesting manuscript heritage. It includes Pamiętnik (The diary) from his exile to Siberia in the 1790s, Dziennik wizytatora (The journal of a visitor) written in the years 1821–1832 and supplements to the chronicle of the Lithuanian Dominican brothers. The preserved texts constitute a rich source material for historians – especially the researchers into the history of Dominicans – but also to geographers, travelers, and ethnographers as well as linguists and the literati. The heritage is also an interesting testimony of how the text and books functioned in the Dominican monasteries in Lithuania and Belarus. It allows for establishing new facts related to the artistic output; research, collector and bibliophile interests of the monastery members, their achievements in the fields of education, functioning of the library and archival collections in the Dominican monasteries of the Lithuanian province at the end of the 18th and the first three decades of the 19th century.
