Petrus Roysius (1505–1571) was a poet, public figure in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, jurist, legal counsellor to the King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Sigismund Augustus from 1549, and one of the writers of the Second Statute of Lithuania (1566). He wrote and published many works of poetry and law. Roysius’ Decisions is the first work of theoretical law in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, in which the author discusses both legal questions and ethical and religious issues in Lithuanian and Polish society. A dedication letter to ruler Sigismund Augustus is added at the beginning. The work was first published in 1563 in Krakow, then republished in Frankfurt am Main in 1570, in Venice in 1572, and in Lion in 1588.
