Der Bauernkrieg von 1525 wurde bislang selten als Problem der Rechtsgeschichte wahrgenommen. Der Konflikt zwischen den Bauern und ihren Herren wird als politische Auseinandersetzung interpretiert, die in ihren 12 Artikeln formulierten Forderungen der Bauern gelten als religiose Utopie. Das Buch stellt diese Auffassung in Frage und geht der Rolle des Rechts im Kontext des Bauernkriegs aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln nach: Lasst sich der Konflikt als Auseinandersetzung uber Rechtspositionen beschreiben? Wie nahmen die Bauern das Recht, wie das Recht die Bauern wahr? Welche Chancen und Risiken barg der Weg des Rechts fur eine dauerhafte Konfliktlosung? Eine exemplarische Betrachtung des Streits um die Frondienste belegt die zentrale Bedeutung des Rechts fur die Geschichte des Bauernkriegs.

Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317577164
Release Date: 2016-07-01
Genre: History

This book integrates women’s history and legal studies within the broader context of modern European history in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Sixteen contributions from fourteen countries explore the ways in which the law contributes to the social construction of gender. They analyze questions of family law and international law and highlight the politics of gender in the legal professions in a variety of historical, social and national settings, including Eastern, Southern, Western, Northern and Central Europe. Focusing on different legal cultures, they show us the similarities and differences in the ways the law has shaped the contours of women and men’s lives in powerful ways. They also show how women have used legal knowledge to struggle for their equal rights on the national and transnational level. The chapters address the interconnectedness of the history of feminism, legislative reforms, and women’s citizenship, and build a foundation for a comparative vision of women’s legal history in modern Europe.

Release Date: 2017-02-28
Genre: Social Science

Die Selbstverständlichkeit, mit der seit einigen Jahren nicht nur der Übersetzungs-, sondern auch der Kulturbegriff beansprucht werden, manifestiert sich in zusammengesetzten Begriffen wie etwa »kulturelle Übersetzung« oder »Kulturübersetzung«, die im derzeitigen translations-, kultur- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Diskurs Hochkonjunktur haben. Dabei bleibt häufig unreflektiert, in welchem (begrifflichen) Verhältnis »Übersetzung« und »Kultur« in den unterschiedlichen translationsbezogenen Diskursen zu denken sind und welche Innovation der Übersetzungsbegriff außerhalb der translationswissenschaftlichen Theoriediskussion einbringt. Die Beiträger des Bandes diskutieren diese Fragen aus einer historischen, kulturwissenschaftlichen, philosophischen, soziologischen und translationswissenschaftlichen Perspektive.

This book equips both lawyer and historian with a complete history of Roman law, from its beginnings c.1000 BC through to its re-discovery in Europe where it was widely applied until the eighteenth century. Combining a law specialist’s informed perspective of legal history with a socio-political and cultural focus, it examines the sources of law, the ways in which these laws were applied and enforced, and the ways the law was influenced and progressed, with an exploration of civil and criminal procedures and special attention paid to legal science. The final chapter covers the history of Roman law in late antiquity and appraises the move towards the codification of law that culminated in the final statement of Roman law: the Corpus Iuris Civilis of Emperor Justinian. Throughout the book, George Mousourakis highlights the relationship between Roman law and Roman life by following the lines of the major historical developments. Including bibliographic references and organized accessibly by historical era, this book is an excellent introduction to the history of Roman law for students of both law and ancient history.
