Skaryna's Stay in Denmark

Since the last quarter of the 18th century many scholars have studied the life and works of Dr Francis Skaryna, the first Belarusian printer... However,the question of his stay in Denmark was raised ...only in 1965...

...the following passage: eximij viri Domini magistri francisci quondam lucae scorina de poloczko rutheni, Secretarij regis datiae...in both documents, can only mean Denmark. Therefore we can conclude that ...Skaryna was Secretary to King Hans some time between1506 and 1512.
