The “Huge Book” (hugest and most Devilish of all medieval manuscripts) is back in its native Czech surroundings, but you can browse it if you’d like.  The ‘About The Author‘ portrait may amuse you.

  1. In the “about” section it says:
    “The last of the long works is a Chronicle of Bohemia by Cosmas from Prague (ca 1045-1125). This is the first history of Bohemia and important work.”
    That’s great to find, I’m American but my heritage is Czech, and I have recently been researching Bohemian roots.

  2. Thanks!
