Overview of History, Culture, and Science


Bartol Gyurgieuits (1506 - 1566?)

500 years since the birth of the author of the first known Croatian - Latin dictionary,
of the practical Italian - Arabian - Hebrew - Chaldean dictionary.

The Englishman Hugh Goughe wrote "The Ofspringe of the House of Ottomane" (1570) which is a translation of Gyurgieuits' book "De origine imperii Turcorum".
In Goughe's book there is a dialogue in Croatian with a parallel English translation,
alongside with two prayers in Croatian (Our father and Hail Mary).
Gyugyieuits is called the "first Croatian lexicographer" in the book.
