Theodor of Shkodra or Theodor Shkodrani was an Albanian scholar of late 12th - early 13th century, of whom little is yet known. In 1998, a 208-page parchment written by Theodor of Shkodra was discovered in the archives of Vatican. The work is a manuscript decorated with golden miniatures and colored initials, divided in three parts. Pages 1–97 deal with theology, 98–146 with philosophy, and pages 147–208 with a history of the known world from AD 153 to 1209. On the final page of the manuscript we find a note by the author "With the assistance and great love of the blessed Lord, I finished this in the year 1210 on the 9th day of March."[1][2]
