Abstract

This session discusses the differences between norms prescribed by the compilation of customary law published in a volume commonly known as Tripartitum and its application in social practice in three parts of the Kingdom of Hungary-Croatia: Požega County (Southern Hungary), Pressburg County (Upper Hungary) and Zagreb County (Slavonia). In all these areas norms stipulated in the Tripartitum and the charter evidence reflects both similarities and differences. Thus, norms of the Tripartitum and norms taken from other reflections of customary law derived from other tradition and specific circumstances on the field will be discussed through issues regarding estates, their succession and divisions.
