Upon comparing westeuropean, szekler and csango examples, we will focus on outlining a common european set of punishments which took its shape during early modernity and modernity too. The typology of csango punishment practices thus outlined will throw a light on the archaic forms of reestablishing order, and the retaliation of norm deviance, in short the cultural-historic rootedness of norm reestablishing. The typology of these specific csango cultural ways of social sanctioning and social retaliation can be set in the backdrop of community law.
