(p.197) 7 Local Officials in Context
The Life Within
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on the officials of the communities, primarily seen as testators and witnesses to testaments, though sometimes performing their official functions. It begins with a discussion of the municipal and church offices themselves, followed by the specific function of witnesses and executors of testaments that many among them carry out. It then turns to the people who held the offices and their social and material background. Finally, individual references to local officials are considered, which provide a glimpse into the ways in which the municipality entered household life, from tribute collection to land distribution.

Keywords:   municipal officials, church offices, witnesses, executors, tribute collection, land distribution, households, municipality
