Abstract

Various aspects of the criminal justice system of the eighteenth- century Republic of Dubrovnik (criminality, out-of-court settlements, penalties and other repressive measures, etc.) are analyzed in order to reach some conclusions about social groups, their shape, and cohesion. The village and the household in rural areas, as well as the Jewish community in the city, were groups with especially strong and multifaceted social ties. For this reason, they were not only a natural environment for violent crimes to rise, but also a suitable target of the repressive policy.
