Die Gerichtsreden Ciceros bieten in vielerlei Hinsicht ein reiches Betatigungsfeld fur den Rechtshistoriker und historisch interessierten Juristen. Sie liefern ein detailgetreues Bild der Gerichtsordnung und der Beweisregeln der Zeit der ausgehenden romischen Republik. Die Arbeit greift den Zeugenbeweis heraus und erforscht ihn umfassend. Auf dieser Grundlage wird - auch im Vergleich mit anderen Autoren aus verschiedenen Zeiten - den wichtigen Fragen des Verfahrens, der personlichen Qualifikation des Zeugen, der Glaubwurdigkeit der Aussage und der Zeugnisdelikte nachgegangen. Die Ergebnisse der Arbeit werfen ein neues Licht auf die verschiedenen Aspekte des Zeugenbeweises in der Zeit der ausgehenden romischen Republik und ermoglichen ein tieferes Verstandnis der heutigen Beweisregeln in ihrem historisch gewachsenen Kontext."

'the glory of wealth and physical beauty is fluid and fragile; but virtue is held brilliant and eternal' The Roman historian Sallust lived through troubled times. He deplored the moral and political decline of the Republic, and in his two monographs he set out to exemplify the reasons for the years of civil strife. Catiline's Conspiracy is an account of the rebellion against the state led by the disaffected Catiline. For Sallust it was 'especially memorable because of the unprecedented nature of the crime and the danger it caused'. Rome's fight against the king of Numidia in The Jugurthine War is a graphic depiction of power struggles in Rome and brutal battles in Africa that eventually resulted in the capture of Jugurtha. Sallust's abrupt and distinctive style is the perfect vehicle for his moral urgency, bitter condemnation, and satirical cynicism. This new translation, which also includes Sallust's fragmentary Histories, captures his effects in an accessible English idiom, and provides a comprehensive introduction to his work as history and literature. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Die römische Erfüllungszusage und ihre Einbettung in den hellenistischen Kreditverkehr

Zentrale Verpflichtungsgründe des römischen Kreditrechts sind die Auszahlung eines Darlehens und das förmliche Schuldversprechen (stipulatio). Formlose Zusagen über die Rückzahlung eines Darlehens, die eine vielfach belegte griechische Urkundengestaltung mit einem Strafzuschlag von 50% sanktioniert, sind nach althergebrachtem römischen ius civile nicht klagbar. Erst das neuere prätorische Recht findet einen Weg, die Kreditpraxis des griechischen Mittelmeerraums in die römische Prozess- und Haftungsordnung zu implementieren: die actio de pecunia constituta. Die vorliegende Arbeit analysiert die technische Umsetzung, die systematischen Auswirkungen und die praktische Tragweite dieser «Hellenisierung», die sich in der Mittleren Republik vermuten lässt.

Die vorliegende Arbeit gilt der Darstellung der Zeugen des Prozessgegners in den Gerichtsreden Ciceros. Dabei werden nicht nur rhetorische, sondern auch juristische und historische Aspekte der Zivil- und Strafprozesse berücksichtigt. An die Analyse der Schriften Ciceros über die Beredsamkeit schliesst sich die Untersuchung von zehn Reden an, so dass der Vergleich von Theorie und Praxis möglich wird. Es wird auch deutlich, wie die von Cicero gewählte Art der Darstellung der gegnerischen Zeugen dem Überredungsprozess, der «Strategie», dient.

An "instant classic," it soon became a fixture on reading lists and bibliographies. According to the Law Quarterly Review, "no one who has read the book can have felt any doubt that the author had mastered his authorities, or that he had a singularly wide and profound knowledge of the continental literature dealing with the subject" (15:198). The second and third editions were equally well-received. The third is the best edition because it contains the equally valuable notes of Goudy and Grant.

Political Humor in the Late Roman Republic

Author: Anthony Corbeill

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400872898

Category: History

Page: 266

Although numerous scholars have studied Late Republican humor, this is the first book to examine its social and political context. Anthony Corbeill maintains that political abuse exercised real powers of persuasion over Roman audiences and he demonstrates how public humor both creates and enforces a society's norms. Previous scholarship has offered two explanations for why abusive language proliferated in Roman oratory. The first asserts that public rhetoric, filled with extravagant lies, was unconstrained by strictures of propriety. The second contends that invective represents an artifice borrowed from the Greeks. After a fresh reading of all extant literary works from the period, Corbeill concludes that the topics exploited in political invective arise from biases already present in Roman society. The author assesses evidence outside political discourse—from prayer ritual to philosophical speculation to physiognomic texts—in order to locate independently the biases in Roman society that enabled an orator's jokes to persuade. Within each instance of abusive humor—a name pun, for example, or the mockery of a physical deformity—resided values and preconceptions that were essential to the way a Roman citizen of the Late Republic defined himself in relation to his community.
