Abstract

This session will present the interpretation of rules and regulations in medieval statutes and laws of the Croatian North-East Adriatic coast pertaining to diverse types of communes: Istrian communes of Labin, Buzet, and Porec; Kvarner village communes of Kastav, Veprinac, and Moscenice; and territories in the Kvarner region that refer to the family estate of the Counts of Krk (Vinodol, Senj, and Krk). Each of those statutes differ according to the influences on their production. Through the analysis of preserved testaments, notary records, written evidence on resolving disputes etc., and regulations in the statutes and laws several aspects of rules of conduct in the Adriatic medieval communities shall be revealed.
