The latin “elegiac comedy” and the latin “tragedy” of XIIth and XIIIth centuries display a big and vari-ous richness of topics, themes, subjects and literary features: use of the elegiac couplets, ovidian imita-tion, meaning of love, incidence of dialogic and narrative sections, and so on. One of these topics is represented by the “scenes of trial by jury” which happen in some of the medieval comedies and trag-edies. This paper, after an introduction to the literary kind, is dedicated to the analysis of the “scenes of trial by jury” which we can find in two texts, a tragedy (Bernardus Silvestris’ Mathematicus) and a comedy (Matthew of Vendôme’s Milo).
