Summary/Abstract: József Benkő’s work, entitled Transsilvania sive Magnus Transsilvaniae Principatus olim Dacia Meditteranea Dictus, appeared in Vienna in 1778. In the chapter De re litteraria in Transsilvania, the author presents the cultural history of Transylvania in the 16th−18th century. He mentions the history of schools and printers, and lists scientists’ names and works. In this study we undertake to present the author’s working method, taking into account the textual practice of similar works from the 18th century.
