The Capitis Deminutio in Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

The capitis deminutio o capitis diminutio (both right) is the legal phenomenon that represents the decreased ability of a person to have and exercise ownership rights.

This phenomenon occurred when losing attributes that define the civil status of a person in Roman society, such as losing freedom, losing citizenship or losing legal autonomy.

The consequence of capitis deminutio can be variable, but it always implies a decrease in the position of the individual within the regime of the people.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
