German mirror

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Deutschenspiegel (created around 1275 ), a so-called legal book , is a collection of common law by an Augsburg minority .

The German mirror was primarily based on the Saxon mirror , Roman law , canon law and Bavarian customary law.

In research, the Deutschenspiegel is seen as an essential preparatory work for the Schwabenspiegel . The title refers to the literary form of the mirror for medieval text collections.

The most important handwriting of the work, the Innsbrucker, is digitalized.
