The author describes newly discovered fragments of Gothic illuminated manuscripts. Three foils from the State archive of MV SR in Banska Bystrica, Kremnica branch (without sign.) and fragment of icunabule from the Archive of Slovak capital Bratislava (Sign. EC Lad 2/51). In the first archive, the author differentiates between fragments A (Introducing Jesus in cathedral), B (scenes with bishop's consecration of St. Apolinare) and C (figure of blessing Christ). The style of illuminations is characterized by a certain simplicity, but at the same time also by a concrete painter's style known from Prague at the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries. All three fragments got to Kremnica through Bratislava . The author thus asks, if it's possible that already around the year 1400 a cultural exchange including also liturgical codexes ane even illuminators could exist between Bratislava canonry and Kremnica vicarage. In the second archive, the author analyses the fragment of icunabule portraying king David playing harp. Characteristic figural style and ornamentation reveals the work of the Austrian painter Ulrich Schreier, illuminator of the two volume Hano's Codex. The manuscript was probably ordered by Georg Peltell von Schönberg, priest and diplomat serving the King Mathew Korvin and Emperor Friedrich III.
