Chapter Summary

The earlier parts of this work, has focussed on the series of idealised visions of the history of the Piast dynasty and those on the mutual relationships within the family, the Piast clan. Above all the author wished to examine the values embodied in these stories and which were commended to their recipients as defining the sense of existence of the royal dynasty. In this volume, an attempt is made to analyse only those spheres of the activity of the Piasts in which it is possible to obtain a long enough list of examples of behaviour of a certain type over a period of time. This allows us to hope that we may separate by comparative analysis the sphere of behaviour which is related to extemporaneous politico-cultural needs from those belonging to a more permanent layer which may be described as connected with tradition.

Keywords: extemporaneous politico-cultural needs; Piast clan; Piast dynasty
