Codex Montanus: Bergordnungen (mining laws) in the repository of FID GEO

Created by Malte Semmler | | E-Publizieren

In cooperation between the FID MONTAN and the FID GEO, the mining laws of Central Europe from the 13th to the 16th century are compiled under the name Codex Montanus. They provide an important insight into the legislation of the Middle Ages and the early modern period.

The „Bergordnungen“ are now published in the repository GEO-LEOe-docs as modern copies of the original works, which were previously only available in old German Kurrent handwriting or print (Gothic type).

The transcriptions of the now 22 texts are thanks to the efforts of Eva and Uwe Jaschik, who have made it their mission to make these important historical sources accessible to everyone.
