Commentary

Antiguas Ordenanzas de la Ciudad y Campos, Archivo Histórico de Málaga. Examined by Eusebio Rioja (rioja1990-1). Based on the Ordenanzas published in Seville in 1527, these first regulations for the examination of violeros in Málaga was published in a very general form in 1556 and elaborated in more detail in 1611 when they were printed. These regulations list the instruments required for examination. The violeros were initially part of the guild of carpenters. See the document Ordenanzas de Violeros, Málaga 1556/1611 [see Document D0381]
