Description
Account “by the archbishop of Skopje” (Pjetër Bogdani) of the state of the Latin dioceses of “Albania and Bulgaria”. It mentions briefly historical events such as the fall of Antivari under the Ottomans (dated 6 August 1521), quotes Titus Livius with regards to Shkoder / Scutari, transcribes several inscriptions from Scutari, and includes a short historical note on the Origine dei popoli Clementini nel vescovado Modunense, secondo la loro traditione. Therefore, although commonly considered a “relazione”, this is a complex text that might be considered a short history of the area under scrutiny.
