DRMH online Preface



The Laws of the Medieval Kingdom of Hungary

Decreta regni mediaevalis Hungariae

Online edition


The present edition is a revised, up-dated, and re-worked version of the five printed volumes of the The Laws of the Medieval Kingdom of Hungary. Decreta regni mediaevalis Hungariae, [DRMH] published between 1989 and 2012. The initiator of that project was Charles Schalcks, Jr., Publisher, a tireless servant of Slavic and East European studies, single-handed editor and publisher of several books and many seminal periodicals. On the counsel of Peter Hidas from Montréal, who was to be General Editor of all the laws of Hungary, he had approached Prof. György Bónis (1914–1985) to prepare a bi-lingual edition of the medieval laws of Hungary that were to be part of a major editorial plan of publishing all the laws of Central and Eastern Europe with English translations.[1] Bónis, in turn, invited James Ross Sweeney (1940–2011) of Penn State University, who then asked the assistance of the present editor, at that time at the University of British Columbia, who finally remained with the project to its very end. The first volume (1000–1300) appeared in 1989 (with a second, revised ed. in 1998); the second (1301–1458), co-edited with the leading Hungarian medievalist of the time, Pál Engel (1938–2001) and the Roman legal scholar Paul B. Harvey Jr. (1945–2014) of Penn State, came out in 1992. The volume of the laws of King Matthias I Corvinus (1458–90) was edited with the cooperation of Paul Harvey and Leslie S. Domonkos, then at Youngstown State University, and published in 1996. For the legislation of the Jagiellonian age, including the great collection of customary law, the Tripartitum, the editor was joined by Martyn Rady of UCL SEES, Peter Banyó of CEU Budapest, and Zsolt Hunyadi from Szeged University (and profited from the counsel of András Kubinyi, 1929–2007), so that the project could be completed by 2012. In the course of these decades a great number of colleagues, faculty and students alike, from the editors’ own universities and elsewhere assisted the editors; financial aid from their home universities and several foundations was helpful in preparing the printed volumes. Thanks are due to all of these persons and institutions, duly listed in the prefaces to the printed volumes of DRMH 1–5.


1        Selection of texts

In principle, this edition intends to present all surviving texts of legal force for the entire kingdom of Hungary in their time (“statutory law” and the major source of customary law) from its foundation in 1000 AD to its end at the battle of Mohács, 1526. No such collection exists, and, considering the rather chequered history of these text, cannot be easily constructed. Besides, the exact definition of “law” (decreta) is open for discussion.[2] The editors have, therefore, made reasonable selections for every period, based on the available resources; they are confident that this edition represents the essentially complete corpus of what were legally binding rules in the kingdom across these five centuries. Their point of departure was the collection of the hand- or typewritten transcripts of Ferenc Döry (1875–1960), who spent decades planning to edit a complete critical collection of medieval laws, but did not live to see it published. His work was acquired by György Bónis, who shared it with the editors of DRMH, then it went into the possession of Géza Érszegi, and is now deposited in the Hungarian National Archives.


1.1     The laws from 1000 to 1301

There is no generally accepted canon for the texts of Árpádian legislation. Neither the choice of legislative documents nor their authentic texts have yet been established through a critical edition. In the absence of a consensus, legal scholars have been free to shape the contents of printed collections in accordance with different principles. In the Hungarian tradition, the Codex Juris Hungarici (CJH)[3] represents a minimalist principle, for it contains only the “books” of Stephen, Ladislas, and Coloman, and the Golden Bull of Andrew II of 1222. The manuscript collections used by the first editors of the CJH did not contain later ones.[4] At the other extreme, Stephen Endlicher included more than eighty pieces in his collection of “laws,” augmenting—theoretically speaking, not without reason—the “law books” with a number of charters of privileges for towns, territories, and other communities.[5] The present edition represents a compromise between these two, combining legal tradition and modern view of legal history. Almost all of what had been part of the CJH for centuries has been included, but now augmented by additional texts. In contrast to the CJH, we have dropped the Institutio Morum “of St. Stephen” (called there the first book of his laws). A. Kollar, as early as the eighteenth century, demonstrated that this “speculum pincipum” does not belong into a book of laws.[6] On the other hand, certain texts of historical significance, not strictly laws or decreta but rather important privileges, discovered only in the eighteenth century, are included here: besides the Golden Bull of 1222, also its 1231 renewal and a later, shorter version of 1267 for a wider circle of freemen. The coronation decree of Andrew III and the parliamentary decretum of 1298 can be regarded as the earliest true pieces of legislation and although missing from the CJH, they are included here. In the printed version, certain texts issued in what was called “synods” had been relegated into an Appendix. That we have revised for the present edition: the statutes of the synods of Szabolcs (1092)–also styled “Book I of King Ladislas’ Laws”–and “the synod of Esztergom” as well as the undated canons of other early twelfth-century synods belong to this group. Together with the statute of Coloman concerning the Jews—as part of this rare group of early “laws”—have been included. However, the so-called “Second Cuman Law” dated to 1279, has been now convincingly argued to be a modern forgery, based partially on an authentic royal charter of that year.[7] While in the printed version the editors’ doubts about its authenticity were already noted, we have now left it out altogether. Finally, an undated collection of legal norms, formerly believed to have originated in the last years of the thirteenth century, was also included in the Appendix as “Compliatio c. 1300.” Containing significant legal measures (although irregular in form), it was seen as the last piece of legislation extant from the Árpádian age. It has now been demonstrated that it originates most likely from a century or so later.[8] Its date cannot be ascertained, the only firm ante quem is the year 1440, when it was presented to King Wladislas I, copied into a booklet; we call it therefore “Compilatio ante 1440”.

With the exception of the early medieval collections (“books”), privileges and decrees are referred to throughout by the date of their issue, as closely as known.


1.2     The laws between 1301 and 1490

The decreta of the Angevin, Luxembourg and Corvinian age have been critically edited—based on Döry’s manuscripts—in two volumes: György Bónis and Vera Bácskai Decreta regni Hungariae. Gesetze and Verordnungen Ungarns 1301–1457 (Budapest: Akadémiai Kiadó, 1976), in the series Publicationes Archivi Nationalis Hungariae II, Fontes vol. 11 [DRH]; and György Bónis with Géza Érszegi and Zsuzsanna Teke, Decreta regni Hungariae. Gesetze and Verordnungen Ungarns 1458–1490 (ibid., 1989), same series, vol. 19 [DRH Matth]. The editors of DRMH essentially followed their choices, but did not include the fragmentary texts and those that are known only by reference (deperdita); they can be consulted in the two volumes mentioned above. An exception is the decree of 1411, for which a text, not utilized in previous editions, was recently discovered. Thanks to the collegial advice of Dr. Iván Borsa of the Hungarian National Archives, the editors were able to include the reading of this version, as it seems to contain the oldest text. As mentioned above, the “Compilatio ante 1440” is now placed in its chronological context here. The editors yielded to tradition and included one of the royal charters on a cameral contract from 1342, while omitting the others printed in DRH. Three other texts, not decreta proper, but relevant for legal and political development have also been retained: the royal propositions of 1415/7 and of 1432/3, and a Register from 1467. In the light of recent research, it is clear that the so-called Palatinal Articles, earlier believed to have been issued in 1457 or 1458, are of much later date.[9] They have, therefore, been dropped.

1.3     The laws and dietal decisions between 1490 and 1526

The decreta of these decades were never edited in any critical version. For this period, the editors were forced to give up the principle of translating and printing the entire corpus of statutory law. The bulk of legal documents emanating from the period between 1490 and 1526 proved to be too large to handle successfully. As far as we know, during these decades more than forty diets were held, and even though the decisions of many are lost, under King Wladislas II seven (or six) decreta were issued amounting altogether to some four hundred articles (paragraphs); from the ten years of King Louis II’s reign, more than three hundred articles have survived. Besides, many of the texts repeat more or less verbatim provisions of earlier decreta and often contain matters that were merely ephemeral administrative issues. One may even question whether all the decisions of diets—some not approved by the king, others not accepted by the estates—deserve at all the name of “legislation” in the sense that they contain legal norms binding for all subjects of the kingdom. This is especially true for the articles issued at the “tumultuous diets” of the last decade of the medieval kingdom under Louis II. These texts are less legal monuments than political programs, designed for the moment and as part of the propaganda war waged between the different factions. We identify them rather as dietal decisions. Lacking up-to-date, document based studies for the period, the context and background of the texts can be indicated only in general outlines. These will have to be augmented by new research, but at least the surviving texts are worth to be made accessible.

The editors, therefore, made a few compromises for the texts of the Jagiellonian Age. Almost all original surviving Latin texts—based on Döry’s transcription, hitherto unpublished—are included in the edition, but not all are translated and annotated. Actually, the CJH Millennial edition also abbreviated these texts or set them in small type. The selection was guided by the question whether the text contains any new legal (including procedural) measure, or whether it is politically important (e.g. reflecting stages in the tug-of-war between different noble and aristocratic factions, or the gradual restriction of the liberty of peasants, and so on). According to these criteria:

(1) some decreta are altogether given only in Latin;

(2) the rest of the decreta is presented in the usual bi-lingual form but those paragraphs that repeat earlier laws were left out, and marked not only—as in previous volumes—when they are verbatim identical to earlier articles by the = sign, but, this time, also when they are essentially the same as texts already edited elsewhere, containing only stylistic changes; these are marked by the ≈ sign indicating “similar to”; or

(3) even in the translated texts, several overly verbose articles were dropped and instead something of a regest is offered, summarizing their content in a sentence in English and printing their tituli (even though these were mostly added by later editors) in Latin.


2 The Latin text

This edition presents, as mentioned above, a hitherto partly unpublished vulgate redaction of the Latin text of the laws, based largely on the transcriptions made by Ferenc Döry. Döry followed, as a rule, the best and oldest available manuscripts: for St. Stephen, the twelfth-century Codex Admont; for Ladislas and Coloman, mainly the Codex Thuróczi; and for the decreta from the thirteenth century onward either the rare originals or the best available medieval transcripts. It is, of course, not certain that there are not more copies in provincial or private archives. For the Golden Bull of 1222 and the decretum of 1514, however, newly established texts have been adduced, prepared by Géza Érszegi, who collated all available copies. As mentioned above, the law of 1411 is also in a new redaction. At some points, where Döry’s reading does not agree with those of the older editions, the disagreement has been noted. In some instances all surviving texts are so corrupt of incomplete that, in order to render some sense, reconstructions proposed by other historians have been consulted. Manuscript variants are included only in the texts from the Jagellonian age (1490–1526). For the preceding centuries the DRH edition of Bónis et al. can be consulted.

DRMH 5, the Tripartium, followed the first printed edition of 1517 (Vienna: Singrenius) tacitly correcting obvious misprints.

The presentation of the texts conforms to the prevailing norms of modern scholarship. Rubrics inserted by early modern editors have been dropped, with the exception of chapter headings in some of the law books of Stephen and Ladislas and in a few later decreta, which may be original. (Exceptions made for the Jagiellonian age are discussed above.) The subdivision of laws into articles is an old CJH tradition and rests implicitly on medieval bases, even though the numbering is modern. The traditional numbering of either the CJH or the first editors has been, as a rule, followed to facilitate scholarly consultation. Differences between this edition and previous ones, if significant, are listed in the concordances following the respective texts. The orthography has been normalized to the usage of u and v, i, and j; e caudata (which prevails for æ) is given as e.


  1. The English translation.

This posed more problems than translations usually do. Every translation implies interpretation and thus a certain amount of change and distortion. The editors had to face at least two additional problems. First, the Latin text was in many cases clearly faulty or garbled and had never been properly amended. During the past five hundred years learned editors of the CJH put their hands to the text and did their best to make sense of it. They did so, however, in the light of a living Hungarian legal tradition, that is, of the customary law of the noble natio Hungarica of much later centuries. We attempt to bring the texts as we have it, even if they do not correspond with the expectations of lawyers and legal historians of a later age, or contained contradictions and obscurities. The editors have noted their doubts and problems, as well as earlier scholarly comments in the notes, but have attempted to render the text of the ancient originals as faithfully as possible. This brought them to the second major quandary. It is obvious that medieval institutional and legal terms in the English language originated in the historical realities of the British Isles. Here, however, concepts that grew out of an entirely different historical experience had to be rendered in English words. Many of our learned colleagues in such cases decide to retain the “original” Latin–which may be precise, but awkward. One still might ask, however, how “original” these Latin terms were. Surely medieval Hungarians named offices and institutions in the vernacular and these terms were translated into Latin by the learned clerks who composed the written record—therefore, only their Magyar version, if known, would be truly original. But deploying a large number of Latin or Hungarian technical terms on each page of English text would not have helped the non-specialist reader. Therefore, the editors attempted in almost all cases to coin a term that appears to be a reasonable English equivalent of the Latin of the laws (and, as far as one can presume, of the vernacular original). Finally, only the translation of the word comes remained “unsolved”: since is does not imply noble title (there was, with some exceptions, no titled nobility in medieval Hungary) nor the kind of royal officer of Carolingian-type “count,” the editors decided to give the Hungarian version, ispán, that seems to have designated first the great men of the realm, later royal officers heading the counties.[10] The difficulties with another enigmatic term, regnicola (verbatim: inhabitant of the realm), that seems to have meant landowning freemen, later noblemen, led to an awkward but perhaps reasonable formulation: they are referred to (in the earlier Middle Ages) as “man/men of the realm,” and later as “gentleman/en of the realm.” Other technical terms are explained in the notes.

All in all, the translation aims at the maximum feasible authenticity, bearing in mind that not all readers will wish to enter into the intricacies of local development. The task was to prepare a readable and informative text, not necessarily elegant, but faithful, and by adding notes and glosses, to enable the reader to derive more precise understanding.



4 The apparatus criticus

As can be expected in a project that was accomplished across several decades with a number of collaborators, the annotations and prefaces to the texts are slightly diverse in every section, even if a certain uniformity was attempted. Every law opens with a preface on its background and textual problems, then lists the manuscripts (used by Döry and usually re-checked by the editors) as MSS, the previous editions (EDD) and a selected list of relevant scholarly literature (LIT). Annotations on historical matters, technical terms, and personal data as well as cross-references to earlier or later legislation are added only to the English translation.
The annotations are composed so that every law can be read in itself, thus repetitions are frequent.

No systematic attempt was made during the preparation of the present edition fully to update the literature in the prefaces and the notes from the printed DRMH, but some recent titles have been added.

The International Medieval Society (IMS-Paris) invites interested scholars to submit proposals by November 24th 2017 for our annual symposium, which will be held in Paris on June 28th to June 30th 2018. This year’s topic is “Truth and Fiction,” and we are looking forward to what is sure to be a challenging and stimulating conference.

Please find the call for papers below, with information about the IMS-Paris Graduate Student Prize. We hope that the members of your organization will be interested in this event.

Best regards,
The IMS-Paris Symposium Committee



Truth and Fiction
28-30 June 2018

In the wake of the US presidential election and the Brexit referendum, the Oxford English Dictionary chose the expression “post-truth” as its word of the year. This expression underlines the growing tendency to dismiss objective facts in favor of impulsive—and often prejudicial—feelings, frequently supported by “alternative facts.” The contentious relationship between the truth and lies, or truth and fiction, which is currently playing out in the public arena has, in fact, a long-standing legacy—one which can be traced back to the Middle Ages. For this reason, this year’s IMS conference seeks to investigate the variety of different approaches to truth and fiction that existed in the Middle Ages.

One possible avenue of inquiry concerns new ideas of Truth introduced by the Gregorian reforms. On a philosophical and doctrinal level, the idea of the infallibility of the Pope, the “Doctor of Truth,” was introduced by Gregory VII who, taking up the words of Christ, contended that he was the Truth (via, veritas, et vita). From a liturgical and sacramental point of view, on the other hand, we can study contemporary tenets of Eucharistic doctrine as a challenge to common sense as a mystery of human understanding—albeit articulated in rationalist terms. Papers thus might address the manner by which the Gregorian reforms placed the question of truth at the center of the demands of society: by constructing this “ideology of truth,” but also—and above all—by implementing mechanisms like preaching, which spread Truth to Christians, and confession, which introduced the obligation to speak the truth. We are particularly interested in the place and the role of Fictions in these devices (sermons, exempla, vita, etc.).

A second approach to this theme is through language, discourse and narrative forms that aimed to produce a supposed truth. We could examine the relationships between literature and history and their ambiguity with respect to the truth. For example, fictionalized historical narratives throughout the medieval period were frequently thought to be true because they provided a means of decrypting the social order. As John of Salisbury wrote, “even the lies of poets served the Truth.” Papers might explore relationships between truth and fiction through the lens of historical and literary genres (novels, epics, etc.) and the ‘truths’ they produced, placing special emphasis on the way that it was possible to believe the facts related in these works. The importance of these historico-literary fictions—what Paul Veyne called “doctrine in the face of facts”—might also be taken into account.

Law and rhetoric also construct notions of truth. Rhetoric permits the control of the relationship between the author and the audiences of a text and the establishment of the status of a text as veridic, among other things. It can even create direct links between music and words, using metaphor as a means of approaching the truth. Papers could consider, for instance, the virtuosity of the effects of Truth produced by the dictamen or even the quaestio scholastique as a method for establishing Truth with certitude, as well as the place of fiction within these new political languages.

Images throughout the medieval period play a fundamental role in the construction or undermining of truth(s). According to Augustine, the image is not truth, but rather a means of understanding Truth. For him, the work of art renders abstractions concrete using representations hat are both specific and individualized. What is the art object’s role in dispelling truth or decrying falsehoods? Through what formal and material means does it achieve either? Papers might consider the use and forms of medieval diagrams, the role of the art object in spiritual form, etc.

Finally, the conference aims to examine the origins and development of interrogative procedures in the medieval period, in that they illustrate relationships with the truth maintained by medieval societies. We are especially interested in the uses and status of fictive facts in inquisitorial trials, the manner that fictions were revealed during trials, or even how the participation of individuals in inquisitorial trials was viewed as an instrument of legitimization of power and as a way of acknowledging those individuals’ own truths and interpretations of facts.

This great diversity of themes opens participation to researchers working in a variety of different fields and coming from a variety of backgrounds: historians, art historians, musicologists, philosophers, literary scholars, specialists in auxiliary sciences (paleographers, epigraphists, codicologists, numismatists)… While we focus on medieval France, compelling submissions focused on other geographical areas that also fit the conference theme are welcomed. In bringing together such diverse proposals, the IMS conference seeks to take a new look at the notion of Truth, its articulations, and its relationship with Fiction in the medieval world.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words (in French or English) for a 20-minute paper should be sent to communications.ims.paris@gmail.com. Each proposal should be accompanied by full contact information, a CV, and a list of the audio-visual equipment required for the presentation.

The deadline for abstracts is 24 November 2017.

Paper selections will be made by a scientific committee composed of Catherine Croizy-Naquet (Univ. Paris 3/CERAM), Marie Dejoux (Univ. Paris 1/LAMOP), Lindsey Hansen (IMS), Fanny Madeline (LAMOP/IMS), and Valerie Wilhite (Univ. of the Virgin Islands/IMS), as well as the members of the Board of Directors of the IMS. Please be aware that the IMS-Paris submissions review process is highly competitive and is carried out on a strictly anonymous basis.The selection committee will email applicants in mid-December to notify them of its decisions. Titles of accepted papers will be made available on the IMS-Paris website thereafter.

Authors of accepted papers will be responsible for their own travel costs and conference registration fees (35€ per person, 20€ for students, free for members of LAMOP and CERAM; 10€ membership dues for all participants).The IMS-Paris is an interdisciplinary, bilingual (French/English) organization that fosters exchanges between French and foreign scholars. For more than a decade, the IMS has served as a center for medievalists who travel to France to conduct research, work or study. For more information about the IMS-Paris and for past symposium programs, please visit our websites: www.ims-paris.org and https://imsparis.hypotheses.org.

IMS-Paris Graduate Student Prize:

Medievalist (historian) contacts in Central and Southeastern Europe

This list was compiled by Andras Kraft, coordinator of the MECERN Textbook-critique essay competition in September 2015 with the help of colleagues in several countries. The purpose was to reach institutions and associations that may have had an interest in the competition. However, we believe that it may be useful for MECERN members wishing to contact fellow historians or send announcements of events, meetings, &c. The addresses and names were valid at the time of its compilation and may change in the course of time.

(ACCORDING TO EUROCLIO: http://www.euroclio.eu/new/index.php/hungary-tte-full-members-467)







As the first pilot project of MECERN, we launched an essay competition about the image of historic (mainly medieval) neighbors in the schoolbooks of the Central European region – in cooperation with the Georg Eckert Institute for International Schoolbook Research (Braunschweig).  The announcement was written up in English, German, French and – with the help of MECERN members in the various countries – local vernaculars. With their and other colleagues’ help, we have established a mailing list of universities, research institutions, libraries, and associations of history teachers in 20 countries, comprising of some 250 electronic addresses who received e-mailed or printed announcements. (We have now placed this contact list on the MECERN webpage under Research Resources: it may be useful for members to circulate invitations or announcements. Of course, the addresses and names are those valid at the time of its compilation, September 2015.)

We have requested that interested parties, students and teachers, register their intention to submit essays in either of the languages of the announcement by 1 November 2015. We were pleased that 25 registrants signed up for the competition. The deadline for submission was 1 February 2016. At that time, eleven essays arrived. Regretfully, a number of registrants did not manage to complete their work in time. Unfortunately, the submission were unevenly spread over region; no essays arrived from Poland, the Czech and Slovak Republics or Hungary. The successful participants came from Bulgaria, Estonia, Croatia, Moldova, Romania, and Russia.

The essays were submitted for evaluation to an international jury consisting of Anna Adamska of Utrecht, Rune Brandt Larsen of Lund, Vasco LaSalvia of Rome, and Robert Maier from the Eckert Institute. János M. Bak from CEU, founding member of MECERN, chaired the jury.

Upon mature deliberation, the jury decided to spread the prizes and instead of giving – as originally planned – one first and two second prizes, granted three second and two third prizes with additional honorary mention of two additional contestants.  By doing so, the jury intended to encourage the younger contestants to pursue their historical and educational careers. A grant from Central European University’s Humanities Initiative enabled us to add monetary awards to the prizes.

The final decision of the jury was to grant the second prizes (in the value of € 500 each) to  Sergej  Filipović from Croatia, Kerli Kraus from Estonia, and Sergiu Musteaţā from Moldavia;

the third prizes (in the value of € 250) went to Viktorija  Antolković from Croatia and  Diana Nikolaeva  Mitea from Bulgaria;

Onoriu Colācel from Romania and the duo Artem Istranin-Alexander Dronov from Russia received honorary mentions.

We congratulate the winners and wish them all the best for their future endeavors.

Some of the best essays have been published in August 2017 as a Dossier in the electronic series of the GEI. edited by János M Bak and Robert Maier as  Mutual Images – Essays on the Image of Historic Neighbours in Some Textbooks from Europe’s East. Eckert. Dossiers 10 (2017). Reference: urn:nbn:de:0220‐2017‐0142.
