edict of rothari a.d. 643
INCIPIT EDICTVM QVEM RENOVAVIT DOMINVS ROTHARI
Translated by Ossian Lang, Grand Historian,
143. De eo, qui post accepta
conpositione se vindicaverit. Si homo occisus fuerit liber aut
servus et pro humicidio ipso conpositio facta fuerit et pro
ampotandam inimicitia sacramenta prestita: et postea contegerit,
ut ille, qui conpositionem accepit, se vindicandi causam occiderit
hominem de parte, de qua conpositionem accepit: iubemus,ut in
dublum reddat ipsam conpositionem iterum parentibus aut domino
servi. Simili modo de plagas aut feritas:qui post conpositionem
acceptam se vindicare temptaverit, in
144. De magistros commacinos. Si magister commacinus cum collegantes suos cuiuscumque domum ad restaurandam vel fabricandam super se, placitum finito de mercedes, susceperit et contigerit aliquem per ipsam domum aut materium elapsum aut lapidem mori, non requiratur a domino, cuius domus fuerit, nisi magister commacinus cum consortibus suis ipsum homicidium aut damnum conponat; quia, postquam fabulam firmam de mercedis pro suo lucro suscepit, non inmerito damnum sustinet.
145. De rogatos aut conductos
magistros. Si quis magistrum commacinum unum aut plures rogaverit
aut conduxerit ad opera dictandum aut solatium diurnum prestandum
inter servūs suos, domum aut casa sibi facienda, et contegerit per
ipsam casam aliquem ex ipsis commacinis mori, non requiratur ab
ipso, cuius casa est. Nam si cadens arbor aut lapis ex ipsa
fabrigam occiderit aliquem extraneum, aut quodlebit damnum fecerit,
Section 144. Of the Comacine Master - If a Comacine Master with his associates (colligantes) shall undertake to restore or build the house of any person whatsoever, after an agreement shall have been closed as to payment, and it chances that someone should be killed, by reason of the house, through the falling of either material or stone, no claim shall be lodged against the owner of the house, in case the Comacine Master or those working with him (consortibus) shall fall to settle for the death or the damage done; because who after having contracted to do work f or his own advantage, must assume, not undeservedly, the damage done.
Section 145. Of masters called or brought in. - If any person shall call or bring in Comacine Masters one or several - to design a work or to daily assist his retainers (servi) at the building of his house (domun aut casa), and it should happen that, by reason of this house (casa), one of the Comacines is killed, the owner of the house (casa) shall not be held responsible. On the other hand, if falling timber or stone should kill an outsider or cause injury to anyone, the fault shall not be imputed to the Masters, but to him who called them in, and he shall be responsible for the damage.
