- Manuscript document on vellum, written in several Romanesque bookhands in 3 columns on both sides of single leaf. Notary signs. 590x 422 mm.An official record of land donations left in wills to the church of San Juan Batista de Calavario near Montenegro in the province of La Coruña, Spain. By far the greatest proposition of gifts come from the Froilaz family and were left between the years 1076 and 1153. Includes are seventeen separate donations.Neither the church, nor the town exit today and the only means of localizing the donations are the mention of the rivers Eume and Lara (i.e. Ladra), both in northeastern La Coruña. Froilaz (Froilan or Froila) was the name of 3 kings of Asturia and a bishop of Leon, and so must have ben closely related to this region.
