ZLOČIN Z PANSKÉ ZVŮLE? VRAŽDA VRCHNOSTENSKÉHO PÍSAŘE KARLEM MAXMILIÁNEM Z BLEYLEBENU
Crime of manor despotism? Murder of patrimonial scribe by Charles Maximilian of Bleyleben
Languages of publication
The article deals with the circumstances of the murder committed in 1647 in North Bohemian town Krupka by young Baron Charles Maximilian of Bleyleben against Johannes Brosche, a serf and servant of his father. Thanks to the well-preserved sources, it is possible to trace the course of the case for several years, from the investigation of the crime, but unpunished, to the judicial recovery of compensation and the salary that Brosche was allegedly not paid during his seventeen years of service. The extraordinary nature of the studied case does not lie in the event itself, but in the preservation of archival sources, which allow a relatively detailed follow-up of the whole case from its beginnings, albeit without gaps and question marks.
