Guest lecture: Visualisierte Evidenz. Inaugenscheinnahmen und ihre Dokumentation durch Augenscheinkarten am Reichskammergericht (1495-1806)

In 1597 Rutger Ruland wrote his work „De Commissionibus“. This book came to be highly esteemed by the judges of the Imperial Chamber Court (1495-1806) and was reprinted 15 times until 1724. It deals with the practices of the commission of evidence and the visualization of space. In this paper I will use Rutger Ruland’s book to outline the procedures of the work of the commission and the practice of visualization of space through maps.

The presentation takes place as a joint event of the research focus area 'Legal Spaces' and the Colloquium on the History of Policey, Crime, Criminal Justice and Conflict Regulation.
