Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article is an analysis of how the Scottish Middleton family made their way into the gentry of Lithuanian Grand Duchy. Focusing on the career of Peter and Andrew Middleton, the author concludes that they chose two regular ways: serving in the estates of powerful noblemen and/or joining the military forces. A guarantee of success was leaving the ranks of evangelical Lutherans and becoming Catholics. [From the publication]
