Unfiltered history

Not what one writes off from one who has written it off again somehow, who has also written it off from one again … No, nothing like that was presented on wednesday in the rudolph winkler house in zeil.
The local historian alois umlauf presented his new book "between homage and gallows" in front of. It is a pure source book with no cribbed interpretations or daring interpretations. Historical sources with deep and undisguised insights into the living conditions of the ancestors in the 18th century. Century.
In order to accomplish something like this, alois umlauf has been going to the bamberger staatsarchiv twice a week for years.
Especially on the individual criminal cases in the 18th century. Century from the oberamt zeil and its surroundings he turned his attention this time to. In his book "between homage and gallows" about 400 criminal traps of our ancestors are presented and sorted as an original source. 38 percent of all offenses were sexual offenses, 21 percent theft, 17 percent bodily harm, ten percent death offenses. Among the 15 percent "other" all the other traps are listed.
In the lecture, umlauf explained the legal framework for all these cases, some of which were quite exciting.
The highest court, the malefizamt in bamberg, was based on the bamberger halsgerichtsordnung of 1507 and then the carolina (the court order of emperor karl V).) from 1532. This had the supervision over the regional court districts, the so-called centgerichte. An amtmann and several schoffen then negotiated in the respective town or region. What appears so clearly structured on paper, however, rarely passes the practical test.
Local historian alois umlauf knew of a plethora of disputes about jurisdiction and the right of execution.

The speaker also informed the audience of about 50 about the punishments that were imposed: fines, expulsion from the country, sale as a slave to a galley or an army, and finally death by gallows.
Only in the middle of the 18. At the end of the nineteenth century, the death penalty was called into question for moral reasons and the erection of penitentiaries began. With a letter of complaint from prisoners about the unhealthy work there and the meager menu of 1781, alois umlauf makes clear the meagerness of the punishments at that time. The menu in a bamberg farmhouse in 1781, for example, reads: "one loaf of bread and nothing else. Sundays only: a loaf of bread and a beer."
All this meticulous source work was acknowledged by wolfgang jager, chairman of the habberge county historical society, in his opening remarks and words of thanks. "Alois umlauf leads us 'ad fontes' – to the sources", emphasized wolfgang jager, chairman of the habberge historical society. He recommended umlauf's book, which would turn the 18.
