The Jistebnice hymn book (Czech: Jistebnický kancionál) is a Czech hand-written hymnbook from around 1430[1] and the earliest witness to a concentrated effort to translate the liturgy of the Western Church into the vernacular.[2] It is the largest surviving compendium and the most important source of Hussite liturgy and singing in the Czech lands. It contains Czech translations of Latin liturgy, religious hymns, songs to be sung at vespers and also Czech folk Christmas carols. The manuscript is deposited in the Prague National Museum.
