Abstract

Interpretatio triplex? Germanists and Romanists facing Savigny. This short piece was stimulated by some critical remarks of Kenichi Moriya to my interpretation of Savigny’s “Besitz”. The criticism helped me to shape my arguments on Savigny and to reflect my approach to pandectist studies on Roman legal sources. Thus, I propose a threefold interpretation of these sources in order to evaluate Savigny’s own appreciation: Before interpreting Savigny’s own interpretation we should interpret the pertinent roman text as well as its comprehension in the time of and before Savigny.
