Jan Chryzostom Pasek

Jan Chryzostom Pasek was a Polish nobleman and writer in the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth He is best remembered for his memoirs Pamietniki , which are a valuable historical source about Baroque sarmatian culture and events in the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth.Born in 1636 in W grzynowice near Rawa Mazowiecka in a minor szlachta family He attended a Jesuit school He enlisted in the army at age 19 and for 11 years he was a soldier in a Polish military, where he fought in the campaigns under hetman Stefan Czarniecki against Sweden, in the Denmark campaign, took part in the war and negotiations with Moscow where he was member of the diplomatic mission , fought the rokoszans of Lubomirski and Turks In 1667 he married and retired to his estate in Ma opolska south Poland Lawsuits that arose from his various excesses and conflicts with neighbours eventually resulted in his sentence to exile, but the sentence was never enforced.Near the end of his life likely around 1690 1695 he wrote an autobiographical diary, a copy of which was found in 18th century and printed in 1821, making Pasek posthumously famous In his memoirs, he depicts in vivid language the everyday life of szlachcic, both during wartime and peace, with valuable batallistic scenes He relates the tales of the 17th century Swedish and Muscovite wars, the catastrophic last years of the reign of King John II Casimir 1648 68 , the incompetent rule of King Micha Korybut Wi niowiecki 1669 73 , and he concludes his narrative with the splendid reign of King Jan III Sobieski 1674 96 In the first part of the diary 1656 66 , Pasek depicts the military life, showing soldiers primary motivations, like curiosity, desire of fame and loot, and disregard for deep religious messages In describing peacetime life 1667 88 , he sees nothing wrong with serfdom and peasant social class oppression Representing late sarmatism culture, he views only szlachta social class as the only real representative of Poland.Pasek died on 1 August 1701 in Niedzieliszki village.
