The article deals with the causes of insufficient reflection of written production in the early and late modern period. It identifies the amount of documents and the issue of their division as the main obstacles to research insofar as they are a prerequisite for mastering the written material. Other problems relate to terminology issues (giving the same document different names), diplomatic terminology's over reliance on archival practice and the uneven depth of development in the various areas of early and late modern diplomatics.
