Record of interrogations and testimonies in connection with criminal trials conducted by the imperial municipal court (Stadtgericht) in Vienna, from ca. May 1572 to July 1574 (f. 234r), with notations about judgments, including pardons and executions (with some dates in August 1574; f. 229r). Among the trials is that of Ilija Gregorić (Elias Gregoritsch, f. 104r; Gregoritz, f. 104v) and his followers for organizing and leading a peasant revolt in Croatia (Crabatischer Paurnkrieg, f. 104r-122v, and 151r-157v). Those proceedings are signed by Johann Hutstocker (Huetstockher, f. 122v and 157v), Stadtrichter (city judge) of Vienna; Hutstocker is known to have held that office from 1572 to 1573. Bound upside down with the trial records is a copy of a petition from Hutstocker (f. 234v-239v), addressed to the emperor, containing a reference to the present year 1572 (f. 239v). Hutstocker discusses the exercise of his duties in office and is possibly seeking a promotion. Following the petition is a table of contents (f. 241r) listing the trials in the volume by name of individual, with crosses marking those who were executed.
