Abstract
The article examines the organization and functioning of the trial of peers as an institution under the earlier Tudors. Comparison of the early Tudor practice of peerage trials with the preceding one, as well as with contemporary legal customs, supports the argument that the age in question witnessed the creation of a fundamentally new repressive institution under an older name. Prosopographic material is cited to track a «policy of rotation» regarding the peerage’s participation in the trials.
