First, an overview of the Visigoths is provided alongside with a brief description of the law and legislation that were produced before the Visigothic Code iudiciorumm that the historical context is known to the reader. Then, the structure of the code is analyzed as well as the political uudiciorum in which it was promulgated, and some closing remarks are made. In this article, we reevaluate the dating of the Laterculus regum Visigothorum, from a paleographical and textual analyze of its four earlier testimonies.

We suppose that the list wasn’t redacted for the first publication of the Liber We suppose that the list wasn’t redacted for the first publication of the Liber Iudiciorumbut probably soon after Erwig’s iuviciorum Ese cambio se produce en dos etapas: ABSTRACT This work tries to follow the evolution of the concept of exsilium like judicial and penal penalty throughout the visigoth period, that parallelly changes of sense and meaning to the generalization of the monastic anthropology in that period and to the progressive joining of the contexts terrenal and idiciorum in the hispanogothic society.

The exsilium becomes thus an imprisonment of penitencial type in a monastery.

That change takes place in two stages: During the Visigothic period Hispanic cities entered a process of gradual transformation, by which the old Roman citizen schemes, maintained throughout the fifth century, were collapsing, replaced by new concepts, based on the new During the Visigothic period Hispanic cities liver a process of gradual transformation, by which the old Roman citizen schemes, maintained throughout the fifth century, were collapsing, replaced by new concepts, based on the new spiritual frameworks that foreshadow the medieval Christian world.


Visigothic legislation can easily follow this process, since the transition from antiquae society to the laws of the 7th century coincides to a large extent with this process of “spiritual de-urbanization” of society.

But this should not be understood as the elimination of cities as material reality, which will continue to exist without a solution of continuity until the Muslim period, but as the disappearance of the city as the basis of the ideological and spiritual structure, being reduced to an aspect of territorial admisitration and, on a more limited scale than in Late Roman times, an economic and social center value. Review to Lex Visigothorum Liber Iudiciorum.

Lex Visigothorum Liber Iudiciorum.

From Rhetoric to Dialectic: Why has the Liber Iudiciorum or, Lex Visigothorumthe grand legal-historical narrative of seventh-century Iberia, been categorized as Germanic?

From where did this categorical ascription derive, why, and what are the consequences? The Liber Iudiciorum was constructed and issued in the middle of the Iberian Peninsula in Toledo by people born in that land, brought up with local culture, and who relied on a iudiciorhm and literary tradition endemic to Iberian regions and the broader Mediterranean.

Iudicioruum will also be well-versed in the history of the late modern poststructuralist from Saussure and then postmodernist turns, as they were taken-up by historical scholarship. Yet, it stands that the latest edition — a product of the Monumenta Germaniae Historica — and the [effectively useless] translation of the Liber Iudiciorum — both more than a century old — and much of the scholarship on the code since, refer to it in problematic categorical ways.

The iudicioorum, modern origins of Germanicism may be evident to most scholars, thanks to recent work in the field. However, these origins were not the a priori product of the modern world and its classicized ethnography of the Early Middle Ages. This presentation will iudiciorim that the ideas that forged them are rooted in historical acts of early modern scholars and their inaugural editions of the Liber Iudiciorum: Pithou rightly created for the Liber Iudiciorum an Iberian heritage, which was followed in Britain well iudiciroum the s.


Schott followed Pithou by further entrenching the narrative of Spanish origins elaborated by the Madrid edition.

From this would emerge the ahistoricizing dialectic that we Visigothic scholars are yet to fully overcome. The anonymous nature of many of the antiquae laws in the Liber Iudiciorum is probably the result of a damnatio memoriae of arian kings by the compilers of the code. Its first promulgation in took place in a context of opposition from Its first promulgation in took place in a context of opposition from Recceswinth to his recently deceased father.

Being partially retroactive, the Liber allows to revoke charters and judgments issued during Chindaswinth’s reign, an actorum rescissio which could also arise from a damnatio memoriae of some sort. Although the Liber unquestionably possesses a practical function, it therefore holds a strong ideological value too as a tool to designate good and bad kings. Recceswinth wanted it to be the only source of law used by judicial courts, but the Liber is neither exhaustive nor totally coherent, for number of laws were issued on a casuistical basis.

The lack of attention to the Liber’s gaps led many historians to believe erroneously that Wamba’s militar law LV IX, 2, 8 was abrogated by Ervig’s Iudiciorym IX, 2, 9 ; as a matter of fact, both laws collected in the Liber were concurrently valid. Ads help cover our server costs.
