Copies of documents include many dealing with military arrangements, some particularly against the Turks; law; decisions regarding pardons for individuals; religious dissent (goods and persons of "false Christians" may be seized, f. 14v; Lutherans to be arrested, f. 19v); privileges for the "Collegium germanicum" at Bologna (f. 20v); establishment of a medical faculty at Milan, "facultas creandi doctores in medicina" (f. 31r). The fact that one document is in French and that the notarial hand shows French characteristics, also the inclusion of some items relating to Switzerland (including one to Lausanne) make it appear likely that this manuscript was executed in the northwest of Lombardy. Prayer against the plague on last leaf.
