Renaissance humanist and encyclopedist from Croatia
Portrait of Paul Skalich
Title page of Skalich's Encyclopaedia seu orbis disciplinarum tam sacrarum quam prophanarum epistemon from 1559, arguable one of the first encyclopedias to clearly use the word encyclopedia in its title.
He and preacher Johann Funck exercised great influence over Albert (1490-1568), first duke of Prussia, and became wealthy. Religious differences with the king of Poland led to the execution of Funck and the rise of Skali?.
References vary regarding Skali?'s nationality. M. Girardi-Kar?ulin at the University of Zagreb claims that he was Croatian, as do the historians Joseph F. Patrouch and Stephen L. Wailes, and other sources. However, according to Encarta he was German.
