2. The oldest texts

Compared to neighbouring languages, the Basque written records are not very old. We can barely find longer texts before the 16th century. For that reason, medieval documents are very scarce and very valuable for scholars.

This section contains a selection of original medieval documents.

 

 

Letters between Martín de San Martín and Matxin de Zalba (15th century)
(AGN. Comptos. Registro 339, fol. 109)
