This graduate thesis is an analysis of the relationship between criminal law and the human body on the territory of Banska Hrvatska in the 17th and 18th centuries. It is based on a theoretical assumption that there exists a recursive connection between the human body and law. By focusing on the changes in human behaviours and legal structures in specific historical circumstances, this thesis sets out to show how historical changes in criminal law had an impact on the formation of human communities and individual bodies. To signify the interrelationship between human bodies and criminal law, early modern court records of witch trials have been used as primary sources. Besides them being a good source of information about the court proceedings and practices, the court records offer a unique glance into the mental and practical engagements of different historical actors with "criminal bodies", as were considered those of early modern witches.
