Book publication in Bucharest

HFC–Bucharest is pleased to announce the publication of Istorie în documente: Mavrocordații (1711-1786) [History in Documents: The Mavrocordats (1711-1786)], published by DAR Publishing with the support of HFC-Bucharest, as well as the support of the Romanian Ministry of Culture, the Romanian Cultural Foundation and the Romanian National Archives.

The editor of the volume, Mr. Claudiu Victor Turcitu, holds a Ph.D from the University of Athens. The book includes 115 manuscripts presented in chronological order, with summaries in Romanian and English. The volume is published in a digital version in the form of a fluid-book, which will facilitate access of researchers to the detailed information of each item. Documents issued by the chancelleries of the Phanariot princes, such as the Mavrocordatos family, were brought to light only sporadically, so most of this archival treasure remains unknown.
