          Abstract: The subject of this research paper is religious medals in Lithuanian archeological material that had been found during archeological excavations in Lithuania during the period of 2009–2019. The abundance and variety of religious medals found during archeological excavations as of yet has not been studied. In general, the extent and diversity of these finds in museum collections has not yet been systematically assessed. The main methodological problem that derived this research to be done is the lack of papers written about this subject not only in the field of archeology but in other fields of research as well. There is only a small number of articles analyzing religious medals. This archeological material is a little-known source of history of Lithuanian culture, and systematized data on these findings would be useful for archeologists to date and describe other findings found during the archeological excavations. The main goals of this research paper are to introduce the historical evolution of religious medals; determine main finding sites of religious medals in Lithuania; determine main types of religious medals, found during archeological excavations in Lithuania; analyze and interpret religious medals found in Lithuania; determine their prevalence and development. The main findings of this research. A total of 241 religious medals have been analyzed in this study, that are kept in several different museums in Lithuania. Due to the rapidly increasing amount of this kind of archeological material available for research, it can be concluded that there is a great potential for further study into religious medals. The first religious medals were made for the miraculous paintings of the Virgin Mary. Religious medals began to be produced in Rome, Italy, and spread successfully around the world and prevailed in the Christian Europe. During archeological excavations, religious medals are found in cemeteries in churches and near them (11 sites), in burials of old cemeteries – 12 sites, in church and monastery complexes (where religious medals had been found in burials in the territory of monasteries) – 3 sites, and residential type sites (where medals had been found outside of burials) – 51 sites. A total of 77 sites were analyzed in this research. In the typology, religious medals have been grouped into 7 main types: medals of Jesus Christ; medals of the St. Virgin Mary; medals of Holy Orders; medals of Saints; medals of Sobriety fraternities; medals of monograms and “non-specific” medals. These types, if needed, were then broken down into smaller subtypes. The majority of religious medals in this research are of 19th century – 52, of 17th century – 24, 18th century – 24, 18th–19th century – 5, 19th–20th century – 32, 20th century – 9. The earliest ones, found in Lithuania, are from the year of 1625. Religious medals were made using two types of technology – they were minted or cast. Mostly made of copper alloy. There are known medals made in Lithuania of Lithuanian goldsmiths and there are known imported medals from Russia (17th–18th/19th centuries), Italy (17th–18th centuries), Spain (17th–18th centuries), Austria (18th– 19th centuries) and Poland (19th–20th centuries). The highest number of medals were found in burials near churches, least – in city’s cultural layers.

                Abstract: This article covers the topic of Armia Krajowa’s soldiers and their manner-of-death. AK is a Polish underground military organization that was active during World War II and the post-war period until 1945. Since Vilnius region was occupied by Poland during the inter-war period (1920–1939), multiple historical events in which AK soldiers were fighting against German Nazis and Soviets took place in modern-day Lithuanian territories. Thus, a considerable number of single and mass burials of Polish partisans are uncovered in Lithuania. This research aims to reconstruct the manner-of-death of 9 AK partisans’ skeletal remains from two battles with the Soviets: Družiliai and Raubiškės. The results indicated a wide range of perimortal lesions sustained on the battlefield: perimortal fractures and gunshot wounds. The analysis also revealed pathological lesions that illustrated challenges individuals had faced in their daily partisanship – hard physical labor, malnutrition, non-specific stress.

                  Abstract: This article analyses the extent to which the Constitutional Court is free to develop the constitutional doctrine. As one of the preconditions for the formation of the constitutional doctrine, the freedom exercised by the Constitutional Court in interpreting the Constitution can be viewed as a subjective assessment of the provisions and principles of the Constitution by the justices of the Constitutional Court, which is determined by objective circumstances and is based on reasoning, in order to achieve the integrity of the Constitution, the balance of the values enshrined in it, and the viability of the legal basis of the life of society and the State. The limits to the freedom of the Constitutional Court in developing a new original constitutional doctrine (or a

                    Abstract: This paper analyses the works of Erasmus of Rotterdam in the collection of Vilnius University Library, printed during the 16th–18th c. Erasmus’ reception in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania remains a largely unexplored topic. Historiography only alludes to specific cases so a broader overview would contribute to a deeper understanding of the developments of the reading society of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The aim of this the paper is to provide comprehensive analysis and explore the topics of the variety of titles, geography of Erasmus’ publishing, history of ownership and reading culture. As most of the copies in Lithuania belonged to clergy or religious orders, theologically and philologically themed works were the most popular. Erasmus’ satires were not as numerous but more longevous in terms of popularity. Most of the copies reached Lithuania from German and Dutch printers. Predominantly Catholic ownership in Lithuania resulted in cases of censorship, most of which were relatively mild as compared to other Catholic countries. Marginalia suggest an active and engaging reader.

                        Abstract: The history of the cities of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania has in recent years attracted more and more interest in the context of Magdeburg law, city institutions, ruling elites, etc. However, to this day there has been no significant research on the working time of city officials, and certain aspects, such as the organization of work during festivals, are used as details to supplement the historical narrative. This article focuses on the working time of the municipal cities of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the 16th–18th centuries, using the city of Merkinė as a reference point. The study aims to find out how the working time of municipal cities was defined by normative documents, when elections and appointments of officials took place in Merkinė, how long the term of office lasted, and when the council and the court of advocatus – lay judges worked. The main part of the article is devoted to the definition of the working time (annual, monthly, weekly) of the municipal bodies of Merkinė (the council and the court of advocatus – lay judges). The work is illustrated by tables based on the data from the act books of the court of advocatus – lay judges and the council.

                            Abstract: After World War I Tatars in Lithuania had to reorganize and institutionalize their parishes. Though Kaunas Tatars didn’t accomplish much in spheres of culture and education, they managed to build a new mosque in Kaunas this way leaving their mark. The main goal of Kaunas Tatar community was creating religious central institution. In 1925 in Vilnius polish Tatar community established institution of Mufti. Kaunas Tatars tried to establish similar organizations thorough all interwar period. Sadly, the conflicts between Muslim parishes in Lithuania constantly stopped this process. Kaunas Tatar Association tried to become dominating institution in Lithuanian Muslim community. This initiative was supported by Lithuanian Government but Tatars of Raižiai and Vinkšnupiai parishes wanted to function independently.

                              Abstract: The narrative of the Lithuanian cinema development attempts to present the Soviet period in a coherent way, focusing on the impact of the Soviet system. However, a broader range of reasons for the malaise of Lithuanian cinema can be found in the criticism of the Lithuanian film cultural field participants. The object of this study is the critical thoughts on the Lithuanian film industry, production, and culture in the 1980s, as captured in the press. Various representatives of the film world and other cultural spheres were involved in the reflection on the poor state of Lithuanian cinema. They gave a radical negative description of the cinema condition and offered different points of view about its reasons. Even though the incompleteness of the thoughts testifies the critical discourse’s dependence on the Soviet system, the argumentative criticism offers a more diverse approach to the Lithuanian cinema in the 1980s.

This research is not about unmarried or childless woman, but only those who have been considered “spinster”. The existence of a “spinster” in the press is not analyzed at all. It should be noted, that the very concept of the “spinster” is a problem, which is why this work examines its definition based on the understanding of the time.

                                    Abstract: The independence of the judiciary as a fundamental constitutional imperative has expressis verbis been enshrined in Paragraph 2 of Article 109 of the Constitution of the Republic of Lithuania adopted in the Referendum of 25 October 1992. In the presently mentioned Article, it is emphasized that “When administering justice, judges and courts shall be independent.”  The Constitutional Court has held more than once that the independence of judges and courts is one of the essential principles of a democratic State under the rule of Law: while administering justice, courts must ensure the implementation of the right embodied in the Constitution, laws and other legal acts, guarantee the supremacy of Law, and protect human rights and freedoms.  Already in the Ruling of 6 December 1995, the Constitutional Court held that one of the fundamental distinguishing characteristics of a democratic State is the principle of the independence of the judiciary. All democratic States adhere to this principle, and, as the historical facts illustrate, the denial of this principle is an immanent feature of totalitarian and authoritarian regimes.  The independence of judges and courts is not an end in itself: this is a necessary condition of the protection of the human rights and freedoms, not a privilege but one of the main duties of a judge and courts arising from the right of every person who believes that his rights or freedoms have been violated to an independent and impartial arbiter of the dispute, which, under the Constitution and laws, would in essence solve the dispute at law, guaranteed in the Constitution (

The everyday life is examined in terms of the worker’s relationship to the factory and its role in the worker’s life. This study analyses the effects of the deficit economy, speculation and the plundering of socialist property, which contributed to everyday life. This study reveals what the realisation of socialist ideals, plans and visions looked like through the eyes of an ordinary worker at the “Elfa” radio factory, focusing on the everyday life of the workers, revealing the real experiences of the people who worked in the factory.

The conducted research showed that the development of the comics format in Lithuania lags behind compared to other regions of the world. After researching Lithuanian comics, it became clear that most of them are historical. In Lithuania, historical comics can be divided into biographical, adventure, educational, or intended to convey a specific process, event or object. They are dominated by the 20th century events and personalities. In Lithuanian comics, history is presented through various phenomena such as clothing, architecture, recognizable historical figures, etc.

To accomplish this aim, the article first explains the concept of the green economy in line with the economic and legal doctrine. The article analyses the constitutional bases of freedom of individual economic activity and environmental protection established in the Constitution of the Republic of Lithuania. It then explores how the Constitutional Court aims to reconcile environmental demands and freedom of individual economic activity, and how this case law supports the deployment of the green economy.

A legislative omission is a special legal gap because it is prohibited by Law, first of all, by supreme law – the Constitution.  The constitutional competence to investigate the constitutionality of legal gaps prohibited by Law was disclosed by the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Lithuania at the beginning of the second  decade of its activity. The competence to declare the existence of legislative omissions was derived from the power of the Constitutional Court, stipulated in the Constitution, to administrate constitutional justice and to guarantee the supremacy of the Constitution, with a view to the better protection of the human rights and freedoms. It was argued that not only a particular legal regulation, but also the absence of it, when the necessity to establish such a legal regulation stems from the Constitution, can lead to the violation of the human rights and freedoms.  The article analyses the conception of the legislative omission in the jurisprudence of the Lithuanian Constitutional Court and the constitutional review institutions of some other states. It also discusses the reasons which determined the choice of the model of the constitutional review of legislative omissions in Lithuania. Finally, the article examines some cases of the review of the constitutionality of legal gaps in the jurisprudence of the Lithuanian Constitutional Court. The authors argue that the legislature has the duty under the Constitution to adopt a legal regulation not only in those cases where the Constitutional Court finds a legal omission and recognizes that the challenged legal act is non-compliant with the Constitution, but also in those cases where, in the official constitutional doctrine, the Constitutional Court formulates some constitutional requirements which presuppose the establishment of a missing legal regulation.
