A subject of this book is the chivalry who possessed the estates in the region of Sącz in the Middle Ages. The area covered by the research is ziemia sądecka (Sądecczyzna) in the mediaeval meaning of the term. It used to refer to the territory of the consecutive administrative and judicial units with the capital in Sącz (castellany, principality, judicial district), in the beginning covering Sądecka Valley and nearby surroundings, later, with the progress of colonization, a more extensive area reaching approximately: Biała river in the east, Nowotarska Valley and the Gorce Mountains in the west, and Beskid peaks forming also the state border in the south and hills between Tropie and Czchów in the north. The period covered by this publication ranges from the 13th century to the 15th century. In the first half of the 13th century we can notice first knightly estates in ziemia sądecka (relating to the earlier centuries, due to lack of sources, we can only make some hypotheses), while the second half of the 15th century was the time of a definitive end of mediaeval chivalry in Poland.

The aim of this study was to gain deeper knowledge of mediaeval chivalry of ziemia sądecka, covering such issues as its genesis, genealogy of local noble families, their financial status, participation in the colonization, foundations and public activity, including – especially – assumption of offices. The results of the research have been presented in monographic chapters dedicated to all noted families, preceded by one separate chapter discussing the earliest knights of Sądecczyzna. Sławomir Wróblewski tells about chivalric klans of Gryf, Janina, Jastrzębiec, Topór, Niesobia, Odrowąż, Ogniwo, Lubowla, Półkozic, Strzemię Zaroże, Strzemię Ławszowa, Szreniawa, Świnka, Turzyna, Czarny Jeleń, Ostoja, Ośmioróg, Sulima and the owners of smaller estates – the families of Trąby, Radwan, Grzymała, Wężyk, Warnia, Leliwa and Bogoria giving us a comprehensive picture of mediaeval chivalry in this region.

Because of Wróblewski’s highly logical and clear analysis the book may interest not only historians, archaeologists and mediaevalists but also students, regionalists and all history enthusiasts.
