    Scope of Customary Law in Novgorod 1584 - 1616

    The proposed project is the study of traditional law enforcement in Novgorod the Great in late 16th – early 17th century. One of the biggest cities of Russian Czardom been included into Muscovite legal tradition for more than 100 years, Novgorod the Great in 1584-1616 was very complicated urban society with active legal life. The codifications of law in Russian Czardom appeared up to 1584 did not cover all spheres of day-to-day life, thus very often, in order to make decisions on litigations, customary law was obtained. Actually just a small
    part of litigations were brought to a verdict. From one hand, it was too hard (and possible only in some cases) to ensure personal (or through a representative) appearance of the sides of the process. From the other hand (as
    N. Sh. Kollmann had proved) in Muscovite legal culture it was more important to institute proceeding in a court that to win a lawsuit. The period under consideration is well fulfilled with sources. The sources allow to characterized mostly all the spheres of legal life in Novgorod (exept those legal cases that were the
    competence of central chancelleries of Russian Czardom). The main sources for the research project are record books of court fees 1584-1605 and 1611/12–1614/15. The record books of court fees cover the whole sphere of civil and petty criminal law enforcement in Novgorod in the period under consideration. The subject of study proposed – the legal life in Novgorod the Great in 1584-1616 is well fulfilled with sources. These books are partly published (in 19th century), partly preserved in the archives of Russia and Sweden. The tasks of the project are: to analyze the nomenclature of the court cases. To characterize and to classify legal conflicts appeared in Novgorod (in historical context of 1) coming out of crisis of 1570s and 2) Time of Troubles
    and Novgorod-Swedish political alliance of 1611-1617 transitional to occupational regime). Important tasks are also: to study social landscape of Novgorod, to reveal every person participated in court cases, to reveal the
    spheres of law enforcement practice that were in competence of Novgorod judge. The main results of the study will be presented at thе Higher seminar.
