Title in English: Series and List of the Abbots of Trakai of the Order of Saint Benedict: for the Preservation of Honour (for the Coming Ages) Through a Strong and Celebrated Memory of Ancestors.
Published: Krakòw, 1668.
Stanislovas Ščygielskis’ booklet “Trakų abatų eilė ir žinios apie juos...” describes the abbots of Trakai city, from the 1st to the 21st, Steponas Kobiežickis (1657-1667). After his death, he was succeeded by Ščygielskis. Apart from short biographies of the abbots and descriptions of their work for the monastery, the booklet also includes the announcement by Jurgis Tiškevičius, bishop of Samogitia, which describes the testament of Jonas Klockis’, donating for the foundation of Benedictine monastery of Pivašiūnai (written on 16 January 1634). It also includes the confirmation and extension by Sigismund I the Old of the privileges given to the Benedictine monks by Vytautas the Great (written on 24 November 1517). The booklet includes the text copied from the inscription on a plaque celebrating Vytautas the Great’s endowment, which at the time was bricked into the façade of the church, as well as plaque on the wall of the church, which bore testimony to the 1577 consecration. Neither of the plaques remain.
