Read more about Daniel Juslenius in:

Daniel Juslenius (1676-1752) was an enthusiastic advocate of things Finnish. He wrote a baroque study on Finland (Aboa vetus et Nova, 1700) which among other things traced the origins of Roman civilization to Finland; a defense of Finnishness (Vindicae Fennorum, 1702); and most importantly, the first major Finnish dictionary (Suomalaisen Sana-Lugun Coetus, 1745), containing 16,000 entries. He and his ideological followers became known as Fennophiles (proto-nationalists, but not separatists).
