ABSTRACT
As part of the commemorative issue “60 Years of the Historical Institute of Montenegro 1948-2008,” this article reviews Marinovic’s survey of the practice of dueling in Montenegro, which needlessly dealt with the alleged heritage of Roman gladiators, when the custom only prevailed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
