[English version] [1] familienrechtlicher Begriff Im röm. Recht der republikanischen Zeit wurde die matrona als rechtmäßige Ehefrau zunächst von der mater familias, der Ehefrau, die sich in der manus ihres Ehemannes befand und damit zu seiner Familie gehörte, unterschieden (Gellius 18,6,8-9); mit dem Verschwinden der Manus-Ehe (Ehe) fiel diese Unterscheidung, und seit Augustus ist in den Rechtstexten m. und mater familias austauschbar.

Matrona

Author(s): Deißmann-Merten, Marie-Luise (Freiburg) | Lafond, Yves (Bochum) | Schön, Franz (Regensburg)
[German version] [1] Term used in family law Under Roman law of the Republican period, there was a difference between the matrona as the legal wife and the mater familias, the wife who was in the manus of her husband and thus belonged to his family (Gellius 18,6,8-9). This difference disappeared along with the marriage with manus ( Marriage), and since Augustus the terms matrona and mater familias are interchangeable in legal texts. In social terms, the word matrona expresses the public function of an honourably wed wife, which in early times possibly corresponded to the functions of the patr…

Sat. 1,5,10) stemmed from the demand by younger voters to bar older o…
