Description
Abstract (cited)
This paper traces a legal sentence from Synodus II Patricii (where it bears primarily on Mt 19:19) through its subsequent development and expansion as contract law in Irish vernacular law texts. This development has serious implications for the expansion of the church’s claims to property and income from the faithful. The texts provide further evidence that there was a single legal culture, embracing the Latin and vernacular laws, in early medieval Ireland.
