Opus isagogicus. Uwagi nad książką Marcina Starzyńskiego Krakowska rada miejska w średniowieczu (Societas Vistulana, Kraków 2010, ss. 402, summary)
Some remarks on the Marcin Starzyński’s book The Town Council of Cracow in the Middle Ages (edited by Societas Vistulana, Kraków 2010, 402 p.)
Languages of publication
The book by Marcin Starzyński recapitulates, rectifies and complements what we at present know about the medieval City Council of Cracow as an institution. The discussed monograph collected the most important issues devoted to the medieval Council of Cracow. The monograph pointed also to the directions along which further research should be continued. The volume therefore does not conclude the study of the aforementioned institution. Its task is rather to introduce further research whose subject-matter might include: the prosopographic studies, the law-creating accomplishments of the Council and the political role that it played in the medieval Kingdom of Poland. It is worthwhile to note that half the volume is covered by the appendices that inform of the city councilors, include the register of the Council-produced wilkurs and specify the debts incurred by the Council in order to achieve the measures needed for lending money to the Kings.
