This study attempts to make more accessible new methods of work with preserved sources of criminal records from the period of the Early Modern Age in the Czech environment. In line with the contemporary direction of Western European historiography, the centre of its attention is not the research of criminality as such but rather that of an actual person who could find themselves ousted to the margins of contemporary society as a result of their transgression. Therefore, one possible example of work with these sources is demonstrated through the focus upon defensive strategies of men and women on the Trebon Estate between 1650-1750.
