Description
Closely related to the “Memorandum” appended to the 1611 “Office (Akolouthia) for St Gregory of Decapolis”, the “Short account” presents in more detail the main events that occurred in Wallachia from 1603 to 1613. Matthaios starts with the invasion of the Transylvanian prince Moses Székely, continues with the invasion of the Transylvanian prince Gabriel Báthory, and ends with Radu Mihnea’s rise to power and the death of the said Báthory. Written shortly after this last event, the text is dedicated to the new prince, Radu Mihnea.
