This edition of 18 swearing-in texts, originating from the 17th and up to the mid-19th century, comprises an entire collection of Slovenian oaths stemming from two groups of sources ― the borough authorities (12 texts) and the non-agrarian professional groups, such as masons, miners etc. (6 texts).

All the texts whose originals are preserved are presented in three forms: the facsimile of the original document, a diplomatic transcription, and a critical transcription suited to contemporary readers. Each chapter begins with a presentation of the documents themselves (facsimile, transcriptions), followed by sections of historical analysis and explanation.
