PEREZ RAGONE, Alvaro J. "Writ" and "Actio" in the Rise and Configuration of the English Medieval Civil Proceeding. Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2007, n.29, pp.333-356. ISSN 0716-5455.

An important difference between the English legal system and the Continental-European system was marked because of the different forms of accessing the juris-dictional tutelage. This was evidenced in the rise of the writs (from "to write, what is written"), with characters very similar to the Roman actio, but without identifying with it. The writ was the order given by the royal authority to start the process or to determine measures to enforce it. The sentence "ubi remedium ibi ius" was converted in "where there is a writ, there is a right". The process preceded the right. Thus, the responsible court decreed when receiving the order from the law clerks secretaryships. If Roman actio was received in England direct or indirectly, whether by the Anglo-Saxons, or the Normans, whether from North Roman-Italic Law or Roman-canonical law, are questions not peacefully answered until today.

Palabras clave : Writ; Actio; English Medieval Civil Proceeding.
