Abstract: This article establishes the place of Dimitrie Cantemir’s Vita Constantini Cantemyrii in the 17thcentury biographical genre of de vita patris. The author points out that the writing of his father’s life story is an intellectual endeavour full of significations, extremely helpful in deciphering Dimitrie Cantemir’s mentality, especially regarding the importance of the paternal model in his own formation and that of his successors.

Keywords: Dimitrie Cantemir, Antioh Cantemir, the European biographical tradition, De vita patris, Vita Constantini Cantemyrii
