• Subiect: Remarks concerning last Wills and Testaments in late Medieval Transylvania The emergence of last wills, in the form we know them from the Late Middle Ages, was a gradual process involving the amalgamation of elements from several legal systems. The most archaic element of any medieval legal system was common law. In its original form it was fully based on oral actions and settled the conflicts within the community without written codebooks. This applied to the inheritance customs as well, where the ties of lineage were the principal regulating forces in redistributing movable and immovable property of the deceased, who had little say in questions concerning the time after their death. The loosening of tribal and family ties, however, made it necessary to provide guidelines for cases when the traditional system of inheritance did not apply or was insufficient.
