Digitised manuscripts of the North Bohemian Museum in Liberec

From the collections of the North Bohemian Museum in Liberec, a group of medieval and modern manuscripts has been digitised. These include mainly liturgical codices. An incompletely preserved gradual and antiphonary (ST 1778, ST 1779) originated in the 15th century. Other fragments (ST 135) come from two different manuscripts. The later of them is a breviary of a Dutch origin (ST 160) while the processional most likely comes from Cologne (ST 13). Items from Bohemia include an urbarium of the villages of Krnsko and Pětikozly (ST 1608) and the genealogy of the family of Jan the elder Vojska of Bogdunčovice and the Tovačov Book (ST 1615).
