The volume is the result of two workshops that dealt with the control of the highest courts in early modern Europe. The individual lectures examined which mechanisms of control in terms of concept and content were used in the early modern period and which actors were involved. The speakers considered the situation in the Holy Roman Empire, the Iberian Peninsula, Scotland and Sweden. A contribution defining control from a jurisprudential point of view, serves as an introduction.
