About this item

Livonia--roughly modern Estonia--became part of Sweden through the Truce of Altmark in 1629, after 70 years of belonging to Poland, then passed to Russia in 1725 under the Treaty of Nystad as a result of the Great Northern War. A law historian, Pihlajamäki explores what happened to Livonian law during this short Swedish 17th century. He covers the outset: the Livonian and Swedish legal orders at the time of the Swedish conquest, the reorganization of the Livonian judiciary under Swedish rule, the procedure in the Livonian courts of the Swedish era, and transplanting Swedish law: the legal sources at the Livonian courts.
