THE ‘USUS’ AS A WAY TO PUT A WOMAN UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF HER HUSBAND

Magdalena Chmielecka



Dział: Artykuły

Abstrakt

The article addresses issues relating to the institution of usus, which was one of the ways a woman could be put under her husband’s authority and power. One of the points discussed is the origin of this institution. I consider the signifcance of the location of usus in the source documents. The fundamental question in research on usus is the determination of the date on which a period of usus started, in other words usus was treated as a sort of usucaption, which implied a date on which it would finish. I also discuss issues connected with usurpatio trinoctii.

Słowa kluczowe

usus ; manus mariti ; usurpatio trinoctii ; marriage ; a husband’s power and authority over his wife.
