Lecture by Mgr. Oksana Bandrovska, Ph.D.

Mgr. Oksana Bandrovska, Ph.D will give a lecutre on the theme of Betrothal according to the Decretum Gratiani commentary Huguccio's Summa decretorum.

Mgr. Oksana Bandrovska, Ph.D will present Huguccio in his commentary to Gratian’s opus magnum – in the Summa decretorum pays considerably much more attention to the engagement than Gratian in his Decretum. Huguccio defines betrothal through shifting it from Gratian’s matrimonium initiatum to desponsatio de praesenti/de futuro. Aside of defining engagement, he dedicates substantial amount of time and attention to classification of engagement into two kinds, and defining each one of them. Huguccio as well elaborates to the big extant on the importance of subarration, and raises up the question of parental voice significance in contracting betrothal.
The lecture is open to all members of the UP community, as well as the general public.
