Chronicle of Wallachia covering the years 1292/1293-1664, completed in Damascus. The Patriarch of Antioch Makāriyūs and his son Būluṣ visited the Romanian principalities twice, from January 1653 to June 1654 and from August 1656 to October 1658. During their travels, they collected and / or translated into Arabic several Greek texts, such as the Book of Prophecies by Paisios Ligaridis or the Chronicle attributed to an un-extant Dorotheos of Monemvasia. Among the texts in the miscellanea called Majmu‘ laṭīf (“Pleasant collection”), one may find the above-mentioned short chronicle of Wallachia, which translates and abridges several Greek texts, such as the History by Matthaios of Myra. The fact that Greek model of the first part (1292/1293-1593) is for the moment lost further increases the importance of Makāriyūs’ Wallachian Chronicle.
