The copy of a nobleman’s testament from Calascibetta finds its justification in the request by the abbot, friar Pietro Rizzari, to keep it in the monastery archive, for fear that the notebook, made of papyrus paper, «could deteriorate or fade or get lost over time» , as it would have constituted a legally valid title for all the rights claimed by the double monastery, named universal heir, on the assets remaining redundant, after the last will of the testator.
