Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article analyses the usefulness of the Lithuanian Metrica for the research on the history of Jews in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The study was based on records spanning the period between 1632 and 1764, and an analysis of the books of entries and court registers was made. A thorough search of the records of the Lithuanian Metrica revealed a rich collection of documents pertaining to many aspects of the functioning of Jewish people in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Of special significance is a rich collection of privilege charters for Jewish communities in royal towns - there are over one hundred of them for the analysed period. As much interesting are also records of lawsuits between Jewish and Christian people before assessory and relational courts. Preserved early-modern court books of the Lithuanian Metrica made it possible to analyse Jewish-Christian conflicts in a long duration and to demonstrate the impact of various factors, such as political developments, economic changes, on the situation of Jews within their local urban community. The analysed documents also provide a lot of valuable information about the occupational structure and economic activity of Jews. The example of Lithuanian Metrica shows the importance for the study of the history of Jews in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania of sources produced by the central state authorities, often neglected in the most recent research.
