Czech Medieval Codifications: The Code of Vladislav (1500)

Legal culture in the Czech lands was based on customary law. The nobility did not trust codification efforts of the Bohemian kings Přemysl Ottokar II and Wenceslaus II. Wenceslaus' codification efforts were finally executed only in the sphere of special laws. Charles IV, King of Bohemia and Roman Emperor, tried to publish the Maiestas Carolina code in 1355. The last law code was written under King Vladislav II Jagiellon in 1500 (“Vladislavské zřízení zemské” /  “The  Code  of  Vladislav”).  The  essay  follows  the  article  “Czech  Codifications  in  the  High Middle Ages” published in 2014 and closely introduces the Vladislav Code.
