ROJAS DONAT, Luis. The Medieval System of Proofs of Germanic Peoples Studied by Germans Historians of Law of Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Century. Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2012, n.34, pp.483-507. ISSN 0716-5455.

This work deals with the Germanic evidence disclosure system, as analyzed by some German Historians of the 19th and early 20th Century, and focuses on the analysis of Friedlosigkeit, which could be translated as "outlawry". The controversy attempted to overcome the impression of the Germanic criminal law (Strafrecht) of that era as being barbaric and primitive, by interpreting it from a non-Roman logic according to an organic development of the law continuously re-adapted to the organization of the medieval society and its needs. This article attempts to prove that there is a Germanic criminal law independent from the Roman criminal law, the point was determining if the right to revenge (Fehderecht) came from the primitive "Germanic freedom" (germanische Freiheit) or if it was a right legitimated by the "state order" of the community (Volksgenossenschaft).

Palabras clave : Revenge; "Friedlosigkeit"; Germanic Law.
