Review:

."..Der Verfasser betont mit Recht, dass man ein kulturelles Phanomen nicht hinreichend verstehen kann, wenn man nicht auch seine Sprache grundlich zur Kenntnis nimmt. Er hatte zudem guten Grund, sich der bulgarischen Verfassung dank der Vielfalt seiner Quellen sich der bulgarischen Rechtskultur auf diese Weise die zu nahern. ... Angesichts des Reichtums des hier vorgelegten Wortmaterials muss man es bedauern, dass sich der Verfasser nur mit der Rechtssprache der Verfassung beschaftigt und die praktische Rechtspflege unerortert lasst, doch hatte er mit der Erforschung dieses Teils der bulgarischen Rechtssprache bereits genug zu tun. Ein lehrreiches Buch uber das Recht einer uns noch immer fremden Welt." Hans Hattenauer, "Zeitschrift der Savigny-Stiftung fur Rechtsgeschichte, 129. Band, 2012 ."..One can only admire Ivan Biliarsky's determination to complete a research project that would have been diffiult to fulfil by an entire team of researchers. The result of his effort is the impressive volume, almost 600-pages long...The enumeration is impressive enough, but one should add a thorough scrutiny of each of these terms to gain an image of Biliarsky's painstaking study...As a result, "Word and Power in Medieval Bulgaria" is an appealing and thought-provoking book. Through a meticulous and intense analysis, in an overwhelming display of scholarship, Biliarsky contributes to a better understanding of the Byzantine Commonwealth." Marian Coman, "Studii si materiale de Istorie Medie", vol. XXIX, 2011"

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The law is a cultural phenomenon that impacts on the whole normative system of a civilisation and finally its core values. It is part of and simultaneously protector of these values. As such the law is in close relation with identity and with one of its main transmitters - the language. Every civilisation has a law code that should be common to all its parts and members and should be based on a common lexis. This book presents a case study in the legal terminology of mediaeval Bulgaria displayed against the broader background of the Byzantine civilisation to which the country belonged. It is accompanied by a glossary of the juridical lexis that is not only an example but forms the very basis of the researc project. Seller Inventory # TNP9789004191457
