Death of Acernus by Wilhelm Leopolski, 1867
He studied at the University of Kraków. He was also known by his Latin name, Acernus, and wrote in both Polish and Latin. He first lived in Lviv, in Ruthenia, then he settled in Lublin. While in Lublin, he became mayor.
He wrote attacks in Latin on the Jesuits. His Latin poems were filled with Latinized Polish words, and on the other hand his Polish poems were often made unintelligible by the use of Latinisms and Hellenisms literally translated. He lived his last years on the charity of the Jesuits.
