One of the most typical medieval economic-organisational forms in European space was the estate. The subject of the research of the proposed project are territorial-property complexes of the high Church princes, particularly of the Salzburg archidocese, and of the Brixen, Freising and Gurk/Krka dioceses. The research will be focused on systematic researching of quantitative manuscript originals (land registers and financial documentation) with the intention of exaustive use of all essential data for economic history. The results of the research will be directed in two types of surveys of historical findings: 1) into scietifific-critical publishing of sources with an extensive introductory treatise, and 2) into analytical studying of individual problems from the field of economic history. The publications will have the form of original scientific articles or scientific monographs; they will be significant for further researches as wel as for final users. The material of the selected estates is for the mentioned research purpose particularly appropriate as it enables sample, problem oriented studies. - Concrete aims of the two-year project are: scientific-critic publication of Medieval land registers for the Bled estate of the Brixen diocese 1253-1464 in monograph form, and elaboration of one to two problem oriented shorter studies with starting-points in detailed research of the originals. By using medieval financial documentation of the estates, which until the present has not been systematically dealt with, the project will bring into Slovene medieval economic history novelties, manily in the filed of quantification of economic phenomena, which will enable future researches a more soild basis and thus steadiness to their researches.
