A newly found source: Some considerations on the work by Henryk Harrer Tractatus contra beghardos from the 14th century: Tractatus contra beghardos, written by a Czech Dominican brother Henry Harrer, is a work of unique value both for historians specialising in medieval heterodoxic movements and scholars focusing on the history of theology and law in the 14th century. The only copy of the manuscript, made at the turn of the 14th century, is currently part of the collection of Wroclaw University Library. The treatise contra beghardos was commissioned by Krakow Dominicans between 1328 and 1334. Most likely the hiring of a foreign expert, Henry Harrer from Prague’s St Clement convent, was an attempt to address multiple controversies which arose among the Krakow religious regarding the evaluation of activities of a certain group of people whose way of life and religious practices differed from those of fellow faithful in the local diocese.
