Languages of publication
Adam Moniuszko’s monograph The Mazovian Land Courts (1588–1648). Structure – functioning – procedures is a detailed book, well-rooted in primary sources and concerning the organization of the Mazovian institution of land courts, their procedures (with special emphasis on local idiosyncrasies as compared to the Crown law) and presenting significant aspects of court staff. The Author, drawing on ‘law in books,’ ‘law in action’ and the legal doctrine convincingly shows the noblemen’s legal apparatus which functioned effectively in the first part of 17th century. The book does not exhaust all research problems and the author repeatedly signals the necessity of further research in this field, e.g. with respect to a legal court procedure called scrutinium or the office careers of the court staff.
