Example text

Ulpian in the forty-sixth book on the Edict) (1) Let us examine how the word familia is used. It has various usages. . (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.
