Description The presentation is focused on the analysis of the earliest law books of the City of Brno with an emphasis on their relation to contemporary legal practice. Special attention will be paid to the earliest Brno law book (inv. no. 1) and the Law Book of the City of Brno from the middle of the 14th century (inv. no. 2), which, despite not having a normative character, were clearly used in legal practice. The second part of the presentation will start from an analysis of selected regulations of the Law Book of the City of Brno and its comparison with the preserved legal instructions. Based on the mentioned analysis, the relation between contemporary practice and the texts of the given law books will be evaluated. At the same time, the presence of Roman legal influences in the individual legal instructions will be pointed out.
