Over the Quartermaster’s Shoulder

Over the Quartermaster’s Shoulder

(p.20) Chapter One Over the Quartermaster’s Shoulder
Kith, Kin, and Neighbors

Cornell University Press

This chapter begins with a journey to Wilno and through its streets, looking over the royal quartermaster’s shoulder as he made his survey of the city in preparation for King Władysław IV’s visit in 1636. It provides the reader with a map of the city’s physical, confessional, and social topographies in which the book’s subsequent thematic analyses will be situated. The physical topography surveyed here is based largely on the royal quartermaster’s Lustration of 1636, with some additional material from that of 1639. Given the limits of the quartermaster’s own account, the chapter also features material from other sources in order to piece together more comprehensive topographies for further analysis.

Keywords:   Lustration, royal quartermaster, King Władysław IV’s 1636 visit, Wilno’s physical topography, Wilno’s confessional topography, Wilno’s social topography
