Articles cover doctrines as to marriage contracts (e.g., may a wife stipulate monogamy?); historical instances; comparisons with Jewish and canon law; contemporary legal and social practice; and projects of activists for women worldwide.

Auf den ersten Blick scheint es wohl kaum einen Bereich des Privatrechts zu geben, in dem mehr und unterschiedlichere Regelungen existieren, als das Eherecht. Dies gilt für die Gegenwart in internationaler und regionaler Perspektive, aber auch für die geschichtliche Betrachtung. Richtet man dagegen den Blick auf die Ursachen eherechtlicher Problemsituationen und versucht sie als abstrakte, zeit- und raumübergreifende Phänomene zu begreifen, dann könnte die Analyse der jeweiligen Konfliktursachen und Lösungsstrategien überraschende Gemeinsamkeiten, über Zeiten, Regionen und Kulturen hinweg hervortreten lassen und ein unerwartet reiches und außerordentlich kompatibles Erkenntnispotential bieten.

Vom Sakrament zum Vertrag

Ehe, Religion und Recht in der abendländischen Tradition

Was ist die Ehe - Ruckgrat einer stabilen Gesellschaftsordnung oder Kernmodell patriarchalischer Herrschaftsstruktur? Die Vielfalt von Meinungen daruber ist verwirrend. John Witte untersucht das komplexe Zusammenspiel von Recht, Theologie und dem Konzept der Ehe im Abendland. Er verfolgt die christlichen Normen und die abendlandischen rechtlichen Prinzipien zur Ehe und zum Familienleben besonders in den letzten 500 Jahren. Dabei stellt der Autor den besonderen Beitrag eines jeden Modells - des sakramentalen-katholischen, des lutherischen, calvinistischen, anglikanischen und des aufklarerischen Ehekonzepts - zur Ehetradition des Abendlandes jenseits moralischer Kategorisierungen heraus.

Gerichtspraxis Im Stadtstaat Córdoba

This study focuses on judicial practice in the Andalusian metropolis of Cordoba during the years 456/1064 to 464/1072. The author analyses the writings of councils of the judiciary, who commented, often controversially, on cases heard by courts pertaining to different judiciary systems. These texts offer new insights into the organization of the city's judiciary and its social and economic life. They allow for a precise definition of the relation between the qadi and governmental jurisdiction. By examining both realms, the author demonstrates -for the first time in a pre-Ottoman context- that "fiqh," the Islamic system of ethical and juridical norms, was held, by all forms of the judiciary of this Muslim capital, to constitute a fundamental component of the legal system. The author develops a new interpretation of the reciprocity between society and law.

Die Brautgabe im Familienvermögensrecht

Innerislamischer Rechtsvergleich und Integration in das deutsche Recht

English summary: The dowry (in Islamic law mahr) is a key figure of classical Islamic marriage law, which was adopted in all Islamic countries. Nadjma Yassari investigates the basis of this legal institution, traces its historical development and contextualized it in the family estate law of Egypt, Iran, Pakistan and Tunisia. Although the legal connections between spouses have been steadily cultivated, the appeal of marriage law is fairly weak: the solidarity of newlyweds has hardly had time to be firmly established; important social pecuniary exchanges have not occurred. The dowry, therefore, still plays an important role in closing of any existing gaps in payment. This insight forms in consequence the basis for a location of the dowry in legal conflicts as well as for its integration in German family law. German description: Die Brautgabe (mahr) ist eine Schlusselfigur des klassischen islamischen Eherechts, die von allen islamischen Landern rezipiert worden ist. Nadjma Yassari untersucht die Grundlagen dieses Rechtsinstituts, verfolgt ihre historische Entwicklung und kontextualisiert sie im Familienvermogensrecht von Agypten, Iran, Pakistan und Tunesien. Obwohl die vermogensrechtlichen Beziehungen zwischen den Ehegatten stetig fortentwickelt worden sind, ist die Ausstrahlungskraft dieser Reformen schwach: Der Grundsatz der nachehelichen Solidaritat ist kaum gefestigt; nennenswerte soziale Transferleistungen bestehen nicht. Die Brautgabe spielt somit weiterhin eine wichtige Rolle bei der Schliessung der bestehenden Versorgungslucken. Diese Erkenntnis bildet in der Folge die Grundlage fur eine Verortung der Brautgabe im Kollisionsrecht sowie fur ihre Integration in das deutsche Familienrecht.
