1st page of the Carta de Logu

The Carta de Logu was a legal code of the Giudicato of Arborea promulgated by the iudex Eleanor in 1392. It was in force in Sardinia until it was superseded by the code of Charles Felix in April 1827.

The Carta was a work of great importance in Sardinian history. It was an organic, coherent, and systematic work of legislation encompassing the civil and penal law. The history of the drafting of the Carta is unknown, but the Carta itself provides an excellent glimpse into the ethnological and linguistic situation of late medieval Sardinia.
