Manuscript Summary:
Manuscript Summary
This parchment contains a rare example of a letter of protection. The numerous folds indicate that the sheet was folded into a very small format in order to be easily carried. The letter promises protection against enemies, assistance from friends and gratification of desires. Red crosses and initials structure the Latin and German text, which contains a mixture of Christian and magical content made up of complete sentences and single letters. This letter of protection was probably written for a certain Greta, named in line 54 of the text. This paper, archived as an “amulet” was found among the documents of the noble family Wellenberg in 1701. (ber)
