O crimă, un proces şi o destituire. Disputele unor oficiali transilvăneni din Banatul de Caransebeş si Lugoj din a doua jumatate a secolului al XVI-lea

  • Subiect: „The record of a trial in 1577 offers us the opportunity to investigate the disputes between two officials in the banat of Caransebeş-Lugoj. Stephen Tomşa, the former ban was accused to have instigated to killing Andrei the Literate of Diviciori. Both the accuser and the counsel’s depositions show a series of enmities between the two ones given the power control and their personal interests in. Apart from the official frame, there was a world involved in complots, denunciations and vengeances that finally degenerated in murder. Andrei the Literate’s assassination came in addition to sufficient unfavorable previous reports the princely court had received relating to ban Stephen Tomşa. We do not know how the lawsuit ended and how its legal results show, as the final part of the document (in annexes) is missing, but Stephen Tomşa was discharged and his possible involving in the named assassination undoubtedly contributed to. In the light of this document the Transylvanian officials’ profile seems to be far from an ideal one, but proceeding rather from emotional stimuli than animated by the state cause, especially in the borderland of the Banat. ”
