Summary

JEWISH TERRITORIAL SELF-GOVERNMENT IN THE CROWN IN THE 17TH AND 18TH CENTURIES: SOURCES

This work has been created as a result of the NPRH (National Programme for the Development of Humanities) research project entitled Jewish Territorial Self-Government in the Crown in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries, the aim of which was to collect the corpus of documents concerning Jewish territorial self-government, located in various archival collections in the period from its creation (around 1580) until its abolition by the Convocation Sejm in 1764. The Ashkenazi Jews who settled in the Polish Crown, and then developed the largest Jewish diaspora at the time, also created a unique structure of regional government. Unfortunately, despite the fascination of many researchers with the phenomenon of the Council of the Four Lands or the Jewish self-government, the progress of research on these institutions has been hindered due to the destruction of many sources – partly during the period of partitions, partly as a result of losses suffered during World War II, especially during the Warsaw Uprising. Original registers of Jewish Councils (territorial communities) and Vaads (congresses of community representatives) did not survive (in contrast to the Lithuanian Vaad) and neither did those of the institutions of the Polish-Lithuanian state – the Crown Treasury, the Crown Tribunals (especially the Treasury Tribunal), the Assessorial Court, and many key castle courts (sądy grodzkie). Other documents are scattered in archives of varying provenance and difficult to access (mainly due to their dispersion and state of preservation). Most of them survived in the files of non-Jewish courts, especially castle courts, which were treated as public records.
