Notes

Abstract: The Court of the Captain of the People was part of the judicial system in Florence, Italy, in the 14th century. It was created to defend the common man from the political infighting between the Papacy and the Holy Roman Emperor as well as the noble families who fought for power. There were two other courts that, in the beginning, had their own jurisdiction, the Podesta and the Executor. Later, toward the middle of the 14th century, their jurisdiction began to overlap. All three rectors were foreign and brought their own officials to help them run the judicial system. With the overlapping of jurisdiction it is unclear what kinds of cases the captain and the other rectors oversaw. Through reading and translating court documents from this period, the author will attempt to illustrate what the jurisdiction of the Captain was.
