Abstract [en]

In the 17th century Sweden was an imperial power in the Baltic Sea region, also in Vidzeme, the northern part of present-day Latvia. The best-known ancient publications in Latvian are from the 17th century. These include the Bible, several sacred song books and various juridical texts.

This article deals with rare, unpublished historical sources that contain hitherto unknown fragments of the Latvian language. The majority of these manuscripts are church and school records.

The authors give two short examples showing some fragments of the early Latvian written language. The first is an extract of a church legal deed, which reflects a standard juridical attestation in Latvian. The second is a specific fragment from another type of church legal deed, which probably represents everyday Latvian speech and includes some swear words.
