ENSo far the name of Paulius Daumantas-Siesickis (Pol. Paweł Dowmont-Siesicki, c. 1536-1606) has been known very little and in the history of culture he is almost a non-existent personality. The situation has changed, when his personal journal written on the margins of the last pages of Vilnius edition (1591) of "The Apology of Evangelical Postilla" by Gregory of Żarnowiec (Grzegorz z Żarnowca, "Obrona Postylle Ewanielickiey") and extra bound blank pages – about 15 sheets in total inscribed in the old Polish with Ruthenian elements by the author’s mastered handwriting – has been recently discovered. The first entry in his Diary dates back to 23 May 1591, and the last one – 26 January 1603. The article gives a short review on the contents of Daumantas-Siesickis’ notes with the main focus on his illumination of political and religious life events in the Polish and Lithuanian Commonwealth, the famine of 1598-99 and the outset of the war for Livonia with Sweden. The article author states that the Diary provides little information on the "big politics", as Daumantas-Siesickis resided in the province and was not a close confidant of the Lithuanian mighty. Nevertheless, his notes are a valuable egodocument and deserve serious attention by historians, philologists and probably theologians. A bilingual Polish and Lithuanian marginal note left by Daumantas-Siesickis in the book of Gregory of Żarnowiec is also presented to the readers’ attention. [From the publication]
