LE PROCÈS PONTIFICAL DE 1339 CONTRE L'ORDRE TEUTONIQUE

Abstract : In 1339, a trial presided by pontifical judges at Warsaw opposed the Kingdom of Poland against the Teutonic Order. The Order was accused of crimes of war, and its presence near the Vistule was declared illegal. The investigators auditioned one hundred and twenty six witnesses and came to the conclusion that Teutonic were guilty. The whole acts have been preserved, and reveal the quality of the executed procedure. The Warsaw trial has been directed in the strict application of the juridical norms in force in the trials ex officio. By another way the collected evidences show gripping outlines about collective memory. We discover how the history of the Teutonic arrival near the Vistule was already historically reconsidered and contradictorily judged by the fama. These judgments were defended by a production of documents now missing. Through this trial, we finally see the making of an ancestral enemy of Poland, and a stage in the formation of the Polish national identity.
