This period saw the transition from a relatively rigid system of legal proofs which predetermined when there was sufficient evidence for a condemnation, to a system based on the free evaluation of the evidence by either professional judges or lay jurors. It is the central contention of this article that the reform of the criminal law of evidence can, to an important extent, be explained by two larger underlying ideological changes.
These new ideas derived from a change in the epistemological and the political-constitutional discourses between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries.

Jahrhundert Over the past fifteen years, Hungarian literary historians have outlined an idea of an interdisciplinary research program that aimed at exploring the early modern history of Hungarian political thinking. One of the most important elements of the proposed work has been to ensure the availability of the texts to be analysed or analysable for the purposes of research.
The texts to be considered for research purposes are coming from highly various genres.
One of the less well-known and less exploited types of texts to be analysed are pamphlets disputations that are related to the politics of the period and that educated the dozens of Hungarian peregrinating students who were raised in the 17th century. Contemporary students could gain an insight through these texts and disputes into one of the most popular disciplines of the era, the fundamentals of political science.

And this for several reasons: All that is so despite the fact, the Global Law is not considered formally a de iure cathegory. The argued arguments are remarkable and in some way very original. Thank to these theories, it is possible to establish some compass points in the relations between international and regional institutions, for example UN and European Union.
The fact is that no one can affirm the existence of an undiscussed or at least most accepted authority at international level. Notwithstanding a new kind or relations between these actors is now arising: Keywords Israel; family law; sovereignty; millet; legal pluralism.
