It is the first large narrative in Lithuanian language about an eminent statesmen, writer, educator, a priest Paweł Ksawery Brzostowski and established by him in 1769 a successful Pavlov Republic which existed for w few decades, a state which didn’t suppress it’s citizens but encouraged them to work, study and not to get discouraged by a temporary scarcity in daily life.
The publication is illustrated with the rare photographs and documents from Lithuanian archives, museums and libraries. Especially valuable is the Lithuanian translation (from Polish language) of the Pavlov Republic regulations written by P.K. Brzostowski and the faksimilia and translation of never published “The Good Order and Responsibilities of the people living in Turgeliai town and Viktoriškės mansion”, written in 1772 by P.K. Brzostowski.
