(Excerpt from the Polish Provincial Statutes of 1420 in the Mikulov Dietrichstein Library Manuscript)
Abstract: Provincial statutes promulgated by the Gniezno archbishop Nicolas Trąba (1412-1422) in 1420 represent a prominent Polish legal relic. Author describes an excerpt from the statutes in a manuscript No. Mk 108, which is located in the Moravian Library in Brno. The manuscript is a part of the former Dietrichstein Library in Mikulov. The manuscript probably comes from around 1440-1460. It is of pure Bohemical nature and contains mostly theological texts such as tracts and letters by John Hus, tracts by Jakoubek of Stříbro and other theological texts. The excerpt from Trąba’s statutes is located in ff. 124r–137v. In some places, the text is literal transcription of selected sections of the statutes (perhaps with small grammatical differences), elsewhere, in particular cases, it also differs factually.
