Description The oldest Rajhrad´s memory in diplomatic sources (documents of Bretislaus I, Duke of Bohemia, dated 18 October 1045 and 26 November 1048) state both the Rajhrad and Břevnov monasteries as the addressee and their wording clearly sows an attempt to prove, that Rajhrad monastery had been subordinated to the one in Břevnov since its foundation by Duke Bretislaus I, when Meinhard of Niederalteich was the abbot of Břevnov. The main starting point when exploring the beginnings of the Rajhrad library and skriptorium is Lectionarium de tempore R 637. This codex attracted due attention even earlier, largely because of its old annotations that were without any doubt added in Rajhrad.
