Parteniy Pavlovich (Bulgarian: Партений Павлович, “Parthenius, son of Paul”) (c. 1695 – 29 April 1760) was a BulgarianEastern Orthodox cleric, man of letters and traveller, regarded as one of the precursors of Paisius of Hilendar.[citation needed] A champion of the South Slavic revival, Pavlovich was the author of the first autobiography in South Slavic literature.[1][2]

Pavlovich was born around 1695 in Silistra,[3] a port on the Danube river located in the southwestern part of Dobruja. Then ruled by the Ottoman Empire and a major regional centre as the capital of the vast Silistra Province, today the city is part of Bulgaria. His father, Pavel, was a local Bulgarian. Parteniy began his education at the Silistra religious school under the teacher Tetradios; the curriculum at the school was in a Greek dialect. He also studied at a Bulgarian school, where he learned the literary Church Slavonic language, which he would later use in his autobiography and marginal notes. In Silistra, Pavlovich also finished a full grammar course under the teacher Palaiologos from Constantinople.[1]

In 1714, Parteniy Pavlovich continued his education in Bucharest,[4] the capital of Wallachia, where he graduated from the Princely Academy of Saint Sava. At the academy, he was taught theology, humanities, natural science and mathematics. In March 1719, upon graduating from the academy, Pavlovich moved to Padua, Italy in seek of further education. However, he could not come to terms with the Roman Catholic teachings in Padua and would often be involved in dogmatic disputes with the local clergy, which forced him to leave the city. He visited and unsuccessfully attempted to study in Venice, Bologna, Florence, Rome, Naples and Otranto, though he was always in trouble due to his Eastern Orthodox religious views, and had to leave Italy before the end of 1719 after less than half a year there.[5]

After his stay in Italy, he was in southwestern Macedonia as a teacher in Siatista and Kostur (Kastoria). There he also began to teach the rationalism of René Descartes, which the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople saw as unsuitable. Thus, the Orthodox leaders temporarily removed him from his position until he at least nominally renounced his heretic teachings. After his stay in South Macedonia, Pavlovich was, for a year, a teacher in Risan on the Adriatic coast of Montenegro. In 1721, Pavlovich travelled around the Ohrid region and the mountains of Albania, visiting holy sites of the Orthodox Church.[1]
