Languages of publication
Wine-production played an important role both in the economic structure and in every day life in the Late Middle Ages and in Early Modern times. The second Testamentary Book of the town of Bratislava includes 388 last wills from the period 1529−1557. Three-quarters of the testaments or wills (276 documents) contain orders about vineyards. The study analyses the sexual division, the trade and the property status of the owners. Moreover it provides insights on the real estate concentration and on the wine trade in Central Europe in the Early Modern period.
