Languages of publication
The archival and library collection of the Cieszyn Brothers Hospitallers, despite being of relatively smaller size compared to the sermonic collection, is of great interest, particularly because of the extant hospital records as well as early prints of medical nature, and a very complex history of some archival and library units. A certain part of the collection shared the complicated fate of the monastery and the monks. Over more than a hundred years they frequently changed owners, all of whom have left their mark in the books. The presence of previous owners in the history of a given volume is best exemplified by seal imprints. The present compilation presents all the early printed books and antique books from the collection of the Archives and Library of the Brothers Hospitallers in Cieszyn, as well as archival records clearly originated outside the monastery. It also demonstrates the influence they exerted on the present shape of the archival and library collection of the convent of Brothers Hospitallers.
