Description
As Andrei Pippidi has compellingly shown, Vita Constantini Cantemyrii was composed in Latin between 1698-1705; it was completed in 1714-1715 in Russia, where the Moldavian prince had found sanctuary. It represents a self-interested biography of the Moldavian Prince Constantine Cantemir († 1693), the author’s father, written (possibly) in order to be dedicated to the Berlin Academy.
