Languages of publication
When it comes to the Magdeburg Law, the history of the inheritance law constitutes an extremely complex issue. The main reason for that is the fact that the source material is scattered and there exists no universal codification for Polish cities settled with the Magdeburg Law. The article analyses resolutions of city councils as well as deeds issued by city owners concerning inheritance law, focusing upon solutions implemented in several cities settled with Magdeburg Law, including Biecz, Bydgoszcz, Ciężkowice, Inowrocław, Kalisz, Kazimierz by Kraków, Kleparz, Konin, Kraków, Lwów, Myślenice, Nowy Sącz, Olkusz, Poznań, Przemyśl, Skrzynno, Wieliczka. The article discusses matters concerning testamentary inheritance as well as intestate inheritance (ab intestato), the rules of inheritance representation, inheritance debt, disinheritance, and the doctrine of escheat.
