THE MAGISTRATE OF SIBIU

.  
.


The Museumís building was purchased in 1545 by the Magistrate of the city, becoming the location of the Town Hall. The Magistrate adjoined the most important offices: the Mayor, the Head of the Municipality, the Judge Royal and the Districtual Judge. The extended executive office was the City Council which included 12 outstanding citizens forming the inner council. Centumvirii (the one hundred) appointed an ĄoratorĒ, chosen from among six candidates accepted by the Magistrate; the orator represented the Magistrate in presidium during the elections. In the year 1721, the system of secret voting and the voting urn were introduced.
As luck had it, the exhibition about the Magistrate of Sibiu is presented in the same room in which the council gathered its sessions in the epoch.
There are exhibited items once belonging to the Magistrate members (a senatorís mantle, one of the centumviri memberís mantle and hat, a voting urn, the oratorís chair, several sigils belonging to the mayors, counts and orators of Sibiu (as Thomas Altemberger was); also the flags of several counts are presented in two special arrangements.
