Summary/Abstract: This article looks at the personality of Pjetër Bogdani in the light of the documentation of the respective time. Firstly, it investigates the contribution of archive and historical research about the precursor of the renaissance of culture and thought. Secondly, Pjetër Bogdani is viewed in the tradition of Albanian linguistics, literary and textology studies. A special attention is paid to the contribution of antic philosophy and classical literature in a cultural perspective. Furthermore, this study treats issues of test reception in a multidisciplinary optic concerning Pjetër Bogdani as a bibliophile and exegete in a bilingual work (Cuneus prophetarum, Patavii, 1685). Finally, I emphasize the work of Pjetër Bogdani in support to the study of European literature, but even to the consolidation of Albanian philobiblical writing tradition.
