a judicial official in ancient Rome, in medieval Europe, and in some bourgeois states such as Germany. In Russia, Peter I created the post of assessor on the staffs of the Senate, the Synod, the courts, and the other Collegiums. This post was gradually abolished in the second half of the 19th century. (It was retained longest in the provincial governments.) The rank corresponding to this post—col-legial assessor, the eighth civilian rank in the Table of Ranks—existed until the overthrow of tsarism in 1917.
