Recht und Sprache, Rechtsfälle und Gerechtigkeit

Ohne Schuld und Sühne, Belohnung und Strafe, ohne Verbrechen und Leidenschaft, Opfer und Täter kam die Literatur nie aus und die Literatur der Romantik ist wie die Zeit davor und danach durchzogen von Rechtsfällen. Im Zuge der Aufklärung wuchs das Interesse an Rechtsfällen sowie am Verbrecher und seinen Beweggründen. Doch wandelten sich das Rechtssystem und die Rechtsauffassung im Zeitalter der Romantik entscheidend. Vor allem durch die ‚Begründung der Historischen Rechtsschule‘ erhielt die Rechtswissenschaft eine neue Grundlage; der Code civil galt als Verletzung des nationalen Rechtsbewusstseins: „der eigentliche Sitz des Rechts [sei] das gemeinsame Bewußtseyn des Volkes", glaubte Savigny. Die Beiträge der Rechtshistoriker und Literaturwissenschaftler gehen den Fragen von Recht und Gerechtigkeit, Verbrechen und Strafe in rechtshistorischen Werken, in Literatur, Ästhetik und Sprache, aber auch in der Rechtspraxis nach: Die historische Rechtsschule, besonders Grimm, Puchta und Savigny, der Bedeutungswandel von Rechtswörtern, Achim von Arnim, Clemens und Bettina, Bonaventura, E.T.A. Hoffmann, die Grimmschen Märchen, A.W. Schlegels Shakespeare-Übersetzungen, Kleist, Eichendorff und Tieck sind die exemplarisch verhandelten Themen.

English summary: It is understood that a stipulation stands as a paradigm for an obligation. Certain contractual clauses, however, have assured the succession not only of the heirs, but even of successors to a single right of the creditor or the debtor. For the first time, Thomas Finkenauer demonstrates this break with the allegedly axiomatic dogma of the Roman law. German description: Die Stipulation gilt als Paradigma des schuldrechtlichen Vertrags. Mehrere Rechtsregeln schliessen die Einbeziehung dritter Personen aus. Jedoch kennen die Quellen mit der Erben- und der Nachfolgeklausel auch Vertrage mit Drittbezug. Wahrend sich mit der Erbenklausel allmahlich der Gedanke der Universalsukzession in das Versprechen durchsetzte, konnten die Parteien mit der Nachfolgeklausel sogar ihre Einzelrechtsnachfolger berechtigen und verpflichten und so Drittwirkung erzielen. Die romischen Juristen entschieden sich damit gegen die Anwendung starrer Rechtsregeln und fur die Bedurfnisse des Rechtsverkehrs. Die Erkenntnis dieses Bruchs mit einem scheinbar unumstosslichen Dogma ist der Romanistik aufgrund ubertriebener Textkritik bisher versperrt geblieben. Thomas Finkenauer stellt die Stipulation als Instrument privatautonomer Rechtsetzung von ausserordentlicher Flexibilitat vor.

Ehe, Religion und Recht in der abendländischen Tradition

Was ist die Ehe - Ruckgrat einer stabilen Gesellschaftsordnung oder Kernmodell patriarchalischer Herrschaftsstruktur? Die Vielfalt von Meinungen daruber ist verwirrend. John Witte untersucht das komplexe Zusammenspiel von Recht, Theologie und dem Konzept der Ehe im Abendland. Er verfolgt die christlichen Normen und die abendlandischen rechtlichen Prinzipien zur Ehe und zum Familienleben besonders in den letzten 500 Jahren. Dabei stellt der Autor den besonderen Beitrag eines jeden Modells - des sakramentalen-katholischen, des lutherischen, calvinistischen, anglikanischen und des aufklarerischen Ehekonzepts - zur Ehetradition des Abendlandes jenseits moralischer Kategorisierungen heraus.
