Abstracts
Based on the archival fonds kept by the State Archive in Pazin (DAPA), this article attempts to consider the extents of the distribution of social banditry and violence in Istria over the first decade of the 19th century. Food scarcity and a considerable resistance against the French government in Istria, particularly within the area of Rovinj, favoured the emergence of violent social behaviour which had been deeply embedded in the mentality of the population ever since the times of the Serenissima. The areas of Poreč, Novigrad and Rovinj were extremely dangerous, they were circled by a large number of criminals and violent crime groups. Despite the fact that the French authorities attempted on several occasions to eradicate banditry by taking military actions that resulted in numerous arrests and hanging, it would remain present for a long time in the everyday life on the Peninsula. The abundance of archival sources is overwhelmed by warrants for arrest of violent individuals who were condemned for most diverse crimes, from petty thefts to injuries and brutal murder. Violent perpetrators and bandits could have been men and women, children and adults, people coming from the towns or the country. The analysis of the history of banditry provides access into the complexity and stratification of social relationships between individuals and, finally, it offers new opportunities for historiographic research.
