Confessio

(397 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[English version] Wörtlich das Geständnis, im modernen Sinne aber auch ein Anerkenntnis, führte anstelle eines Urteils unmittelbar zum Vollstreckungsverfahren entsprechend dem Grundsatz, daß der Geständige als verurteilt anzusehen sei: confessus pro iudicato habetur (est) (Dig. 42,2,1; 3; 6; Cod. Iust. 7,59,1). Von diesem Grundsatz gab es freilich Ausnahmen: 1) Im Strafprozeß wurde der geständige Angeklagte bestimmter schwerer Verbrechen (z.B. crimen laesae maiestatis: am berühmtesten Jesus vor Pilatus, Mk 15,2ff.) als verurteilt behandelt; ihm blieb ledi…

Adiudicatio

(103 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[English version] Nach Gai. inst. 4,42 ist a. derjenige Teil der Prozeßformel, der dem Richter rechtsgestaltende Befugnisse einräumt. Diese waren bei den 3 Teilungsklagen ( familiae erciscundae, communi dividundo, finium regundorum) erforderlich, weil bei ihnen die vorhandenen Vermögensgegenstände, bzw. bei der letztgenannten Klage die Grenzlinie, unter den Parteien verteilt bzw. geklärt werden mußte. Zu diesem Zweck konnte der Richter sowohl sachenrechtliche Rechtspositionen (Eigentum, Hypothek, Nießbrauch, etc.) zuweisen a…

Demonstratio

(155 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[English version] Im allgemeinen Zivilrecht die spezifizierende Kennzeichnung einer Sache oder Person (Dig. 6,1,6). Dieser Begriff liegt dem noch heute geltenden, von den Römern vornehmlich bei der Testamentsauslegung verwendeten Auslegungstopos falsa d. non nocet (‘ein falscher Ausdruck schadet der Wirksamkeit des Geschäftes nicht’) zugrunde (Inst. Iust. 2,20,30). Im zivilprozessualen Kontext bedeutet d. die bei einer Vielzahl von Prozeßformeln an den Anfang gestellte knappe Präzisierung des streitgegenständlichen Sachverhalts (Gai. inst. 4,39;…

Editio

(595 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[English version] Der von dem Verb edere (“vorlegen, vorzeigen, bekanntmachen”) abgeleitete Begriff e. hat im juristischen Sprachgebrauch mehrere Bedeutungen: (1) Die e. actionis (Dig. 2,13) bezeichnet die für die Rechtshängigkeit eines Prozesses im Formularverfahren erforderliche Bekanntmachung des Klägers gegenüber dem Beklagten, welche Klage(-formel) er gegen ihn anzustrengen gedenkt; sofern der Beklagte diese Formel annimmt ( accipere iudicium), ist damit zugleich die litis contestatio (Streitbezeugung) zustandegekommen. Lange Zeit h…

Prozeßrecht

(2,960 words)

Author(s): Hengstl, Joachim (Marburg/Lahn) | Witthuhn, Orell (Marburg) | Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[English version] I. Alter Orient Eine Epoche, in der sich fast nur der Stärkere sein Recht zu nehmen vermochte, ist selbst in den bis in die Mitte des 3. Jt. zurückführenden Keilschriftrechten nicht festzustellen [7]. Allerdings ist v. a. den altbabylonischen Briefen und einigen Regelungen des Codex Ḫammurapi zu entnehmen, daß die Selbsthilfe eine wichtige, rechtlich anerkannte Rolle spielte [8]; ferner wird für das hethitische Recht kontrollierte Selbsthilfe vermutet [5]. Die Verbreitung des Wortes “Richter” (DI.KU5/ dajjānum) seit der altakkadischen Zeit (24./22. Jh…

Iurisdictio

(528 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[English version] Wörtlich “Rechtsprechung”. Solange die i. in verschiedene Verfahrensabschnitte (insbes. in iure, apud iudicem) aufgeteilt war, bezeichnet sie die hoheitlichen Machtbefugnisse, die dem röm. Gerichtsmagistrat zur Wahrnehmung der Rechtspflege übertragen sind. Während dieser Terminus urspr. für die Privatrechtspflege gebraucht wurde, wird er im 2. Jh.n.Chr. auch auf die Strafrechtspflege ausgedehnt sowie auf das Kognitionsverfahren ( cognitio ), in dessen Kontext i. die richterlichen Amtsbefugnisse insgesamt umschreibt - also auch die Befug…

Formula

(300 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[English version] Die schriftlich abgefaßte f. ist das Wesenselement desjenigen Prozeßtyps, der das Legisaktionenverfahren ( legis actio ) abgelöst hat (mittels der lex Aebutia, 2. Jh. v.Chr., sowie zweier leges Iuliae, 17 v.Chr.) und der demzufolge allg. als Formularprozeß bezeichnet wird. Unbeschadet einer wohl nur allmählichen Fortentwicklung zeichnet sich dieser klass. Verfahrenstyp in der späten Republik und der Prinzipatszeit gegenüber seinem Vorgänger durch seine weitaus größere Flexibilität und Anpassungsfähigkeit a…

Missio

(701 words)

Author(s): Weiß, Peter (Kiel) | Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] [1] Dismissal from Roman military service The word missio was a technical term for dismissal from Roman military service. During the Principate, honesta missio usually followed after completion of the normal period of service (20 years in the legions, 16 in the praetoriae cohortes, 25 in the Auxilia and the equites singulares Augusti, 26, later 28, years in the navy), often even several years later. Invalids received early missio causaria. Severe misconduct was punished by dishonourable discharge ( missio ignominiosa). Veterans who were dimissi honesta missione or e…

Accipere

(244 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] with the meaning of ‘receive, obtain’ (cf. Dig. 50,16,71pr.) characterizes several juristically relevant processes: as accipere hereditatem for instance (Dig. 28,5,77) the actual receipt of a legacy; as accipere censum the acceptance of a ‘tax declaration’ from the person liable to tax (Dig. 50,4,1,2); as accipere iudicem in more ancient times the acceptance of a judge appointed by a magistrate, later replaced by the meaning of a judge agreed between the parties. The meaning ‘accept’ refers for instance to accipere legem the acceptance of a law by the people; accipere…

Legis actio

(600 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] The legis actio (LA) was the earliest form of Roman civil procedure and, therefore, characterized by considerable formality. It owed its name to a law from which the suit received its immutability but which Gaius (Inst. 4,11) was already at a loss to explain entirely. The formalities that had to be observed in this type of proceeding, which was reserved for Roman citizens and included precise repetition of certain formulas as well as correctly performing the required actions (Gai. I…

Hasta

(1,030 words)

Author(s): Campbell, J. Brian (Belfast) | Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin) | Siebert, Anne Viola (Hannover) | Salomone Gaggero, Eleonora (Genoa) | Barceló, Pedro (Potsdam) | Et al.
[German version] [1] Hasta, hastati In the Roman army of the middle Republic, the hasta served primarily as a thrust lance for close combat although it could also be thrown; it had a wooden shaft and an iron point. The hasta was adapted to the fighting style of the  phalanx, but it remained in use when, in the 4th cent. BC, the Romans adopted a more flexible set-up in maniples (  manipulus ). According to Livy (Liv. 8,8,5-13), whose account, however, is not without its problems, in 340 BC the Roman army consisted of three battle rows, the hastati, the principes and the triarii. The triarii were a…

Litis denuntiatio

(279 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] (‘Dispute announcement’) is a form of the Roman procedural opening that was in use for a relatively short time (essentially in the 4th cent. AD) but then stopped being practised because of its ponderousness. Its characteristic feature is that the litis denuntiatio (LD) addressed by the plaintiff to the defendant in written form is served upon the latter not directly and immediately but on the basis of a statement of claim application ( postulatio simplex) with the permission or even with the help of the court. This form of opening therefore represents a…

Replicatio

(119 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] As a counter-exception, the replicatio was the means in the Roman civil formula procedure for the claimant to rebut an exception ( exceptio ) of the respondent. The latter then had recourse to a duplicatio, the former then to a triplicatio, etc. All these objections were incorporated into the trial formula ( formula ) and thus constituted the dispute presentation debated and substantiated before the iudex . An example of the replicatio is shown in Dig. 44,2,9,1, where the claimant is enabled to reply to the objection of legal force to the effect that …

Cognitio

(374 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] is derived from cognoscere and means an investigation or decision carried out when acting as a judge. In criminal proceedings, this term covers the investigation of a crime including the establishment of the facts (Dig. 47,20,3 pr.), as well as the interrogation of a person in remand (Dig. 1,16,6 pr.). In civil proceedings, causae cognito usually means a summary examination by a magistrate; as a form of proceedings, the cognito changes from an extraordinary type of proceedings ( extraordinaria c.) to the exclusive type of trial (so-called cognition trial/pro…

Restitutio

(499 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] In a general legal sense, restitutio means 'restoration'. In the area of Roman criminal law, it refers to the full or partial revocation of a legally binding conviction, as a result of which the condemned is restored to his former status (cf. Cod. Iust 9,51). In Roman civil and civil action law, a distinction must be made between a material and a formal restitutio. In certain actions, the material restitutio is the desired outcome, thus above all in actions in rem such as the rei vindicatio (action for the restitution of goods by the owner): in …

Intentio

(325 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] The petition that determined the object of the dispute (which might have to be proven; Gai. Inst. 4,41) in the formula characteristic of the Roman formulary procedure (  formula ). In the case of a declaratory action, this formula is limited to the intentio (Gai. Inst. 4,44), while suits for obligations were differentiated depending on whether the object was a certum (i.e. a particular sum, object or quantity of goods) or an incertum (i.e. quidquid dare facere oportet, ‘everything that someone is required to pay’). In the latter case, the intentio was used to give prec…

Pronuntiatio

(160 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] [1] (rhetoric) v. Actio [1] (rhetoric) v. Actio [1] Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin) [German version] [2] (legal) Declaration (legal). Literally 'declaration', pronuntiatio in Roman law meant any ruling made by the judge on the matter at issue (e.g. Dig. 42,1,1). The narrower sense arose from the peculiarity of Roman procedural law in strictly permitting only a condemnatio pecuniaria ('pecuniary condemnation', i.e. sentence to payment of a monetary sum). Notwithstanding this, there were particular actions which cou…

Centumviri

(811 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] The term centumviri (‘hundred men’) refers to a court whose existence, according to heavily disputed theory, probably goes back to the beginnings of the Republic; its proceedings are documented throughout the period, and it is only at its sittings that the ancient symbol of state sovereignty, the wooden lance ( hasta, Dig. 1,2,2,29) was displayed, Gai. Inst. 4,16; Cic. De or. 1,57,242; Top. 17,65. The court's composition is suggested by its name: from each of the 35   tribus , three men were chosen as members (giving 105 ‘men of the hundred’; see Fest. 47: ... et, licet quin…

Reiectio

(63 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] Reiectio civitatis refers to the relinquishment of civil rights, reiectio iudicis to the right of the parties in a civil or criminal suit to reject a certain number of judges who would be considered for deciding the case according to the list of judges, .

Confessio

(443 words)

Author(s): Paulus, Christoph Georg (Berlin)
[German version] Literally a confession, but in the modern sense also an acknowledgement. It led immediately to the enforcement proceeding instead of a sentence according to the principle that the confessing party should be considered as having been sentenced: confessus pro iudicato habetur (est) (Dig. 42,2,1; 3; 6; Cod. Iust. 7,59,1). However, there were exceptions: 1) In criminal proceedings a defendant confessing to certain grave crimes (e.g., crimen laesae maiestatis: the most famous case being Jesus before Pilate, Mk 15,2ff.) was treated as sentenced. All th…
