Description Legal composite manuscripts containing texts relating to the Bohemian provincial law are one of the most important sources for understanding the late medieval legal reality. Their thorough codicological and legal historical evaluation including comparisons with other codes are one of the most important tasks of legal medievistic. For such legal convolutes includes composite manuscript of Petr Cerroni, which we can certainly arrange to the rare documents of "codification" efforts in the field of Bohemian provincial law after 1400th. In its introductory part retained to these days a copy belonging to the oldest preserved exemplars of all the texts included in it. Besides the texts of the Bohemian provincial law also old Bohemian rhymed compositions, excerpts from the Bible and a practical manual compiled from contemporaneous medical works.
