The aim of this project is to make the modern critical edition one of the most famous sources of the Bohemian Provincila Law - the so colled Book of Rosemberg (Rožmberská kniha). By the edition works will be compiled and reflected all textual versions of this source including the application of the analytic-comparative methods of all relevant auxiliary historical sciences (above all codicology and paleography) at the same time. The compilation of the critical edition will set up good preconditions for a new interpretation of the so called Book of Rosemberg from historical, legal-historical and linguistic (bohemistic) point of view as well. Thus will be fulfil an old desideratum of our practise of edition at least, which avoiod publishing medieval legal monuments traditionally.
