Except for Marco Polo (whose book entitled, "The Million", meaning a million lies about a fabulous China), Europeans knew very little about China. When the Mongols pushed out of China in their conquests to the west, suddenly the Europeans were faced with a veritable threat. In 1241, Mongols had killed more than 100,000 knights and soldiers in Russia, Poland and Hungary. In ...more

Плано Карпини зарим тохиолдолд хэтэрхий сайхан буудсан эсвэл нүдээр үзээгүй зүйлсээ үнэн мэт бичсэн бололтой. Чингис бол дээрэмчин тонуулчид дундаас тодрон гарч ирсэн дээрэмчин. Цэргүүд нь удаан байлдаанд ядарч сульдан, хоол хүнсгүй болоход 10 цэргээс нэгнийх нь махаар бусдыг нь хооллох тушаал өгч байсан гэнэ. Хаанаас олж сонсчихоод жинхэнэ юм шиг бичсэн байдаг байна? Харваас худал зүйлд ч гэсэн итгэн бичсэн байх нь их. Дундад зууны үе гэхээр арга ч үгүй юм уу даа.

Ер нь тэгээд дайн хийхдээ

Planı Carpini'nin Moğolistan gözlemlerini ve seyahatnamesini içeriyor. Önce Batu sonra Güyük'ün ordasına giden Carpini, oldukça sürükleyici bir şekilde gördüklerini anlatmış. Yayına hazırlayan dipnotlar ile zenginleştirilmiş.

They destroyed cities and castles and killed men and besieged Kiev, which is the greatest Russian city, and after a long siege they took Kiev and killed the townspeople, so when we went through that country we found countless human skulls and bones from the dead scattered over the field. Indeed Kiev had been a very great and populous city but now is reduced to almost nothing. In fact, there are hardly two hundred houses there now and the people are held in the strictest servitude. Carrying the

John of Carpini was a Franciscan originally from Umbria, appointed by Pope Innocent IV as papal legate to the Mongols. At the time of his appointment, Carpini was "provincial" of Germany stationed at Cologne. Starting from Lyon, the then seat of the of the Holy See, in April, 1245 (26 years before Marco Polo travelled), he crossed Eastern Europe, Ukraine, and Russia, to the "Golden Horde" or camp, of the just elected Great Khan, Cuyuc, grandson of Genghis Khan, near what is today Karakorum in ...more

Astonishing first hand account of the 13th century Mongol civilization seen through the eyes of a Franciscan friar. However, footnotes and maps would make it easier to follow. Web edition published by eBooks@Adelaide.edu

Bir solukta okuyup bitirdim. Yazarın ilave notları ve kimi yerlerdeki düzeltmeleri kitabın değerini daha da arttırıyor.

İlginç bir kitap. Bir seyahatname, günlük tarzında yazılmış. Ancak biraz dağınık, okuma zorluğu yaratıyor. Bazı ifadeler, ikinci ağızdan anlatıldığı için hatalar içerdiği anlaşılıyor. Bununla birlikte temel bazı bilgilere ulaşma anlamında yararlı.

Kitabın sonunda yer alan Cengiz Han’ın Büyük Yasası çok ilginç. Tarihin en acımasız hükümdarının, kendi halkının ve yönetimi altına girmeyi kabul etmiş olan diğer halkların haklarının korunması konusundaki talimatlarını ve her şeyin bu kadar kirlenmemiş
