The Judicial Process of Varad and its Cases: some Anthropological Comments

Faculty Tower, Room # 409

 

Lecturer(s):
Ignasi Terradas

Institute:
University of Barcelona



The Regestrum Varadinense (1208-1235) is a unique historical source for the study of vindicatory or compositional justice linked to the application of ordeals. the lecture proposes the analysis of ordeals as part of the process settled for compositional justice, and not only as a proof or as an irrevocable verdict. Also, the interactive complexity of the judicial process at Varad –together with some other tribunals- could explain its persistence after the prohibition of 1215 (IV Lateran Council).

Ignasi Terradas is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Barcelona
