Abstract:

The paper shall discuss a topic little-known in Polish historical research: the history and organisation of the vehmic courts Vehmgerichte in the late medieval Holy Roman Empire. The author begins with the highlighting of linguistic and terminological problems, linked to the multiple legends and myths which have grown around those courts through the centuries. Depicting the history, role and wide popularity of Westphalian vehmic courts enables one to connect them with the present times, addressing not only the issue of political murders in the Weimar Republic, but also potential inspiration for the contemporary legislators.
