Подтверждения привилегий Португальского университета в правление короля Жуана I (1384/1385-1433)
Confirmation of privileges in the Portuguese university during the reign of King John I (1384/1385-1433)
The article is dedicated to the problem of continuity and historical memory in a emerging medieval corporation. It observes the end of Portuguese Interregnum 1383-1385 and the first years of the Avis period.
There are two groups of sources in my investigation. The first group consists of the royal diplomas, some of them were donated during John of Avis (future John I) was still protector of the kingdom. Sources of the second group are descriptions of the certification procedures in preambles and conclusions of notarial copies of royal and papal diplomas – and also some particular certification documents. It’s important to underline that most of these certifications form the cartulary of the university privileges. Now we have its copy of the XV c. – Livro Verde (Green book). This codex was an important source of the corporate law until reforms of the XVIII c.
By these texts it’s possible to investigate how the emerging system of corporate law was put into practice. Also I try to analyze its integration to the system of the Royal law.
