The essay considers three recently discovered works of medieval fiction with subject matter largely from antiquity (Gesta Romanorum, Asenech [Joseph and Aseneth], Kronika o Apolloniovi [Apollonarius of Tyre]), published in Czech in the early sixteenth century. They are, however, preserved only in fragments. The printer was Mikuláš Bakalář of Pilsen, who specialized in medieval literature that aimed to amuse.
