Lublin isa very old town. It has many historical monuments . Lublin has abeautiful old city as well as many historical churches.
Long, long time ago the Polish king Stefan Batory gave up his royal privilege to judge the nobility and established the Crown Tribunal - thehighest court of appeal for noblemen. With time the fairness of the verdicts has been questioned more and more often. The wealthier the partythe bigger the possibility of winning the case. One of the two tribunal courts was located in Lublin, city in eastern Poland.Once upon a time there was a poor widow. She lived on what little land she had inherited from her late husband. A wealthy nobleman fromŻytomierz called Kurdwanowski raided widows property, robbed what he could and burned the rest, knowing full well that with no malefamily members alive nobody would defend her. The woman went to city court and demanded compensation but she lost her case. Her lastchance was to appeal to tribunal court.Kurdwanowski arrived to Lublin with a retinue of henchmen and pouch full of gold. The bench gathered and the appellate proceeding began.Invoking Gods name the judges announced the verdict. The magnate won again although it was blatant injustice. The exasperated womanwrung her hands and exclaimed: "Even the devils would have pronounced the fairer verdict!". The judges pretended they didnt hear the insultand filed out of the courtroom.That night at midnight the strangest cortège arrived before the Crown Tribunals building. Big black fiery horses were stamping the groundand snorting impatiently. Elegantly clad gentlemen stepped out of the magnificent carriages. They entered the tribunal to once again examinethe widows case. A court writer they woke up and called to attend the case noticed with a trembling heart that under their long black robesthe hooves could be seen and from under their ornate feathered hats the horns were peeking out. Before the writer decided what to do a newverdict was pronounced, this time to the poor womans advantage. The nobleman was to give her back what he took and pay for the damage.To emphasize the statement the devil slammed his hand on the table leaving the scorched mark on its surface. Some say that it was his way ofsigning the verdict and he burned the parchment through.Seeing that the devils announced a fair judgement when people in his name didnt, the Jesus on the cross averted his face in shame from thescene and shed the tears of blood.Before the first cock crowed to announce a new day the party had vanished.The news of the devils trial spread quickly through the city and people gathered around the tribunal. The unfair judges fell down the stairs intheir hurry to the next trial breaking their legs. The cheering crowd moved the crucifix to the St Michael The Archangel church, where itremained until the church was taken down.
