Abstract

The section deals with various points of view on pleasure and leisure: normative and intellectual. The first paper discusses attempts of urban communities on regulating (by both, prohibiting or organising) ways in which their inhabitants amused themselves, as well as attitudes towards different kinds of amusement of both secular and spiritual authorities. The second one analyses communal regulations concerning exporting, importing, selling and serving wine in public inns in medieval Dalmatian cities. The third paper depicts how humanistic poetry is used as a way of entertaining by a case study on Ianus Pannonius, one of the first Croatian-Hungarian humanists.
