Wigand expanded upon the earlier work of Nikolaus von Jeroschin. Wigand's Chronica nova Prutenica (New Prussian Chronicle) is one of the basic sources of information for the history of the Prussian lands and parts of the adjoining Grand Duchy of Lithuania, covering the period between 1293 and 1394. Originally written in Middle High Germanrhymed prose, the work combined actual accounts with legends, folk tales, and myths. Out of an estimated length of 17,000 lines, only about 500 have survived to the present day. However, in 1464, the Polish chronicler Jan Długosz ordered a translation of his work to Latin, which has survived almost intact.
^Note that von Marburg is a purely descriptive title added to his original name of Wigand by later historians, rather than a proper surname. Also the von should not be confused with a preposition used in later times to denote someone's noble status
