Sample text

Gaius in the first book of his Institutes) (48) There follows another distinction in the law of personal status: some persons are sui iuris, some are subjected to another’s legal right (alieno iuri). . (52) So, slaves are in the power (in potestate) of their owners. This power comes from the law of nations; for uniformly among all peoples we can observe that owners have the power of life and death over their slaves, and whatever is acquired through a slave is acquired for the owner. . (55) Likewise in our power (in potestate nostra) are our children whom we have sired in a legitimate marriage.

2) The word familia is also employed to signify a sort of body (corpus) defined either by a rule particular to its members or by the common rule of general relationship. By a particular rule, we describe a familia as a number of persons who, either by nature or by law, are subjected to the power ( potestas) of one person: for example, a pater familias (male head of a household), a mater familias (here, a wife if she is subject to her husband’s manus), a son or daughter in their father’s power, and those who then follow them in turn, for example, grandsons and granddaughters (from sons), and so on.
