THE DOCUMENTS OF WLADYSLAW ODONIC FOR THE ORDER OF THE JOANNITES OF 23 MAY 1237
Languages of publication
In 1237 the Great Polish duke Wladyslaw Odonic endowed the Order of the Joannites with the village of Korytowo upon the Ina River. The document of endowment has been preserved until our times in two editions, both maintained in their original copies – a shorter one (the original kept in Vilnius) and a longer one (the original kept in Cracow). The longer edition - supplemented with a precise description of the borders of the endowed land - came into being, most probably, in 1238, in the face of disagreement with the Cistercians of Kolbacz. The analysis of handwriting and dictation of both editions allows us to broaden the hitherto known output of the scriptorium of the Joannites in Poznan from the years 1218-1256.
