High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Benedict of Poland was
a Polish Franciscanfriar, traveler and explorer. He accompanied
Giovanni da Pian del Carpine in his journey as delegate of Pope
Innocent IV to the Great Khan Guyuk of the Mongol Empire in
1245-1247. He was the author of the brief chronicle De Itinere
Fratrum Minorum ad Tartaros (On the travel of Franciscan friars to
the Tatars), published only in the 1839 in France (and a year later
in Poland) and a longer work Historia Tartarorum (The history of
the Tatars), discovered and published only in 1965 by the academics
of Yale University. This journey preceded that of Marco Polo. The
report of Benedict is important because it includes a copy of the
letter of the Great Khan to the Pope.
