The Celebrations of the Jubilee of the Polish Bicameral Parliament in Piotrków Trybunalski (5th–6th October 2018). The Academic Conference “From Piotrków to Warsaw. The 550th Anniversary of the Parliamentarism of the Republic of Poland”

The commemorative ceremony for the 550th anniversary of the establishment of the Polish bicameral parliament in Piotrków Trybunalski was organised by the Marshal of the Sejm, Marek Kuchciński, and the Deputy Marshal of the Senate Maria Koc. As demonstrated by Prof. Wacław Uruszczak, it was in Piotrków, from the 9th to the 31st of October 1468, that the first Polish bicameral Sejm gathered, with the participation of territorial envoys elected by local legislatures (sejmiki). The jubilee celebrations began with a Holy Mass, which was followed by the unveiling of the plaque in the Castle Square commemorating the event of 550 years prior, and the opening of a special exhibition at the Royal Castle in Piotrków. One of the important elements of the celebrations was the academic conference entitled “From Piotrków to Warsaw. The 550th Anniversary of the Parliamentarism of the Republic of Poland”. During the symposium, speeches were given by scholars from several research centres who deal with the history of Polish parliamentary system. The celebrations in Piotrków were part of a series of national events related to the anniversary. Among these, it is worth mentioning the session of the National Assembly (July 13, 2018) and the academic conference entitled “The Sejm of the First Polish Republic – the Parliament of Many Nations and the European State Representations” (April 27, 2018), which both took place at the Royal Castle in Warsaw.
