Codex Iuris Lubschicensis is a valuable source on the fifteenth-century Silesia, located on the borderland of cultures. Author of the code’s decorations, Johannes von Zittau, developed his illumination technique among miniature painters at the court of Wenceslas IV in Prague, and then, most likely as a result of the Hussite revolution, moved to Wrocław. The book – a symbol of former glory of the town – was stored in the town hall until 1945, then it was lost. It was found in 2002, but it never returned to Głubczyce: it was placed in the National Archive in Opole.
