Summary

Instructions to Nicolaus Theupulo on his appointment by the Doge of Venice to govern Brescia for one year. At this time, Brescia had been under Venetian control for a century, but had experienced recent hostilities with the French; as such, the instructions mention events and governmental decisions from the 15th and early 16th centuries, as well as setting out specific guidelines for Theupulo's tenure in Brescia. Instructions are followed by a table of contents, listing the 76 parts of the instructions (each paragraph is numbered in the text). Notarized by Petrus Grafoldarius.
