"The History of Livonia" by Dionysius Fabricius
In 2010, the Society of Johannes Esto has published an Estonian translation, together with original Latin text, of "Livonicae historiae compendiosa series" by Dionysius Fabricius. The work has been translated by the Estonian classicist Jaan Unt, edited by Kai Tafenau and Enn Tarvel. The comments to the translation have been added by Enn Tarvel.
The work, which covers the period from 1158 to 1610, was compiled by a 17th century Catholic priest who lived in Viljandi. It focuses on events in Livonia during the Polish period, especially the Polish-Swedish War which started in 1600. It presents these events from the viewpoint of Polish politics and Catholic Church, thus somewhat differing from the traditional Lutheran approaches to Livonian and Estonian history.
The book is available in hardcover, 411 pages, ISBN 978-9985-876-83-1
