Manuscript TitleSchaffhausen "Richtebrief"
CaptionParchment · 29 ff. · 22 x 13.5 cm · Schaffhausen · around 1300
Manuscript SummaryThe "Richtebrief", written in or about 1300 is the oldest codex in the collection that was written outside the monastery. It contains laws protecting individuals and regulating business and trade, a series of regulations for ensuring the independence of the city, and laws for the constitution of Schaffhausen. It is likely that the creation of this "Richtebrief" is a result of the political alliances Schaffhausen had built with Zurich, Constance and St. Gall. Thus, the first part of the manuscript follows the model of a document from Constance, while the second follows a model from Zurich. (rue)
