Excerpts from Teodor Parnicki's diary published here were written in the first years of his stay in the Mexico City (December 1952 or 1953). They document the process of the author's work on 'Byzantine story' and comprise an analysis of the political situation in the Eastern Empire in 5th century as well as the relations with western Christianity. The plot - complicated and rich in riddles - and multilayer relationships between the characters are meant by the author to connect directly to Christological discourse characteristic of 5th century Christian theology. The final parts of the diary refer to an initial project of the novel 'The End of 'The Concord of Nations'' (Paris 1955). The manuscript of the diary was found in the collections of The Polish Library in London.
