Languages of publication
This paper discusses a legation of Jan Szczęsny Herburt (1567–1616) to Ottoman Porte and its’ effect among local nobility of Przemyśl Land. Herburt delivered a speech presumably on 19 January 1600 at the regional diet (summoned prior to the National Diet) in Sądowa Wisznia. The speech included not only his impressions from the mission to the Ottoman Porte in 1598 but also his opinion on the current internal and external policies of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The text confirms the author’s good education and considerable refinement, as well as his notable oratorical skills.
