Editors: Cosmin Popa-Gorjanu and Remus Câmpeanu

We intend through this issue of the journal to give to specialists in medieval, pre-modern and modern history the opportunity to approach the manifestations of phenomena perceived as corruption by the contemporary society. The subjects of analysis are not limited to facts and practices, but they can include perceptions and ideas regarding these, as well as their articulation in discursive form and the development of institutional or normative means of combating corruption.

Patron-client relationship: Nepotism; simony; venality of office; selling of office; advancement to office by gift and favor; gift-giving; appointment through networks of patronage; distribution of benefits, honours, and favors.

Anticoruption: Discourse against corruption; language of corruption; criticism; legislation against corruption.
