AbstractDocumentary sources are a useful tool to analyse climate in the pre-instrumental era, especially in places with a long writing tradition (see Jones et al. (2009) and Brázdil et al. (2005; 2010) for review articles). They include a wide typology, from any piece of paper to paintings or markers. These sources provide a great range of information, including direct evidence (descriptions of weather or extreme events) and climate proxies (dates of crop collections, blooming, rogation ceremonies, icebreaking etc). Among them, weather diaries provide first-hand information in a sequential and mostly continuous way, with precise dating reaching, sometimes, subdaily resolution. Their time coverage ranges from months (e.g. Carlo de Zinzendorf weather diary at Trieste, from June 1776 to June 1777; see Pagnini, 1978) to almost a lifetime (e.g. Haller Wolfagang diary from Zurich, from 1545 to 1576; see Flohn, 1949). Sometimes longer weather diaries can be found when they are supported by an institution and compiled by many authors, such as the Premonstratensian Abbey diary at Hradisko that covers the period 1693–1783 (Brázdil et al., 2008). However, in this case the climate perception can vary depending on the author and this can lead to homogeneity problems.
