Abstract

The session is the first one of five sessions dealing with the various aspects of reform and renewal in law and politics. The main emphasis is put on the difference between the law and reality in legal procedures with in the Kingdom of Hungary and Bohemia. Thus, the question will open how legal novelty under the Angevins was operating in the relationship between the ruler and magnates of the Kingdom. Secondly, the question of codification in Jagellonian Hungary and Bohemia will be contrasted with the procedure at the court of vice-royal in Slavonia.
