Research for the situation "1327 in Olmütz"

I find these pictures to "Olmützer Losbuch" ...



... given to pinterest by Darren Worley (he seems to cooperate with Marco Ponzi)

I found the file "SpisyFF_131-1968-1_10.pdf" (if you want to get it, search for this file at the search engine). It's an addition to the text of Zatocil and it contains pictures to the text. 4 of the pictures show pages of the Olmützer Losbuch.

Inside of the cover with a wheel mechanism to cast the lost, identical to one of the pictures above.


4 wise men.


Example of the animal pages of the Olmützer lot book. The animal shall be an owl.


The year "1327" (given to the Olmützer Losbuch by an unknown writer in 19th century) gives the event, that Olmütz got a new bishop.

Possibly a lot of things about the family are confused, cause the later "Berken" family became promoter of the Hussites. ... ba&f=false


Olmütz was an important place for Jews. 32 and 22 (as they appear in this lot book question) are numbers of the Sepher Yetzirah. Possibly the author of the text had a Jewish background. As many lot books are said to have an Eastern background, it wouldn't be a surprise, if the original author of this lot book genre came from this direction.

A theater play from 19th century Prague ... ... ka&f=false
about "Henry the Lion" ...
... uses a (positive) figure "Hugo Berka von der Duba".

I couldn't find such a person, possibly Hinko (or similar) was interpreted as Hugo. Generally it is assumed, that the family had a German, not a Slavic background, although they were already a long time in the Bohemian region.
