Resumen

ZAMBRANA MORAL, Patricia. Branding as Punishment in the History of Spanish Law: Considerations on Its Legal Nature. Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2018, n.40, pp.645-673. ISSN 0716-5455.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-54552018000100645.

This work analyzes the cruelty of the history of criminal law and its punitive nature, especially the punishment of branding which was frequently applied and there has been not much research about it. The aim of this study is to understand the characteristics of this punishment and how it was applied, as well as to determine the legal grounds for its practice as corporal or infamous punishment, then conceptualizing both categories since there is no agreement in the doctrine regarding this matter. We will then examine the effective use of this punishment by paying especial attention to the Visigoth decalvatio, mentioned in a selection of norms of the Medieval Spanish historical law (Liber Iudiciorum, Fuero Juzgo, Costums de Tortosa, Royal Fuero, Seven-Part Code…), and the evolution in the Modern Times until its final abolition.

Palabras clave : Branding as punishment; Infamous punishment; Corporal punishment; Infamy - Decalvatio.
