Manuscripts from the Slavonic Library

Eight manuscripts from the collections of the Slavonic Library were digitised in 2017. The earliest of them are the incomplete Sudebnik of Ivan III, a collection of laws of the Russian state (shelf mark B 1), copied around 1560, and a liturgical codex (shelf mark T 4311), made in Ukraine most likely at the end of the 16th century. The other digitised manuscripts come from the 17th and 18th centuries, specifically from the areas of Russia, Ukraine and Croatia.


Medieval Manuscripts from the Museum of the Brno Region

The Museum of the Brno Region digitised five medieval manuscripts coming from the library of the Benedictine Abbey in Rajhrad in 2017. Apart from collections of sermons, written by Andreas de Broda and Albertus de Padua, they include the medical collection R 421 and the codex R 427, containing texts of diverse content, comprising legends, confession works, the treatise De ludo scaccorum by Jacob de Cessolis and others.


Modern Manuscripts from the North Bohemian Museum in Liberec

The North Bohemian Museum in Liberec provided access to three modern codices from its collections in 2017. They contain extracts from judicial quaterni of the registers of landed property (tabulae terrae) from 1557–1600 (Inv. No. ST 1609), a copy of the work of Victorinus Cornelius O práviech, súdiech i dskách země České knihy devatery [Nine Books on the Laws, Courts and the Land Registers of the Kingdom of Bohemia] made in Hradec Králové in 1609 (Inv. No. ST 1607), and a collection of copies of documents and accounts of the family of the counts of Colloredo-Waldsee (Inv. No. ST 1621).


Manuscripts from the Military History Institute Prague

The Military History Institute Prague has digitised another 30 manuscripts from its collections, mostly from the 18th century. In terms of content, these mainly include an army training manual, but also cartography and theoretical works on fortifications are represented; a commentary on firearms in shelf mark IIR C 15860 is exceptional for the number of drawings. Most of the digitised volumes come from the library of the Thun-Hohenstein family in Děčín and from the library of the dukes of Saxony and Teschen.
