Alternative interpretations of a discussed Celsinian response on Durchgangserwerb. In the basic text, D. 24,1,3,12-13, Ulpian reports a famous response of Celsus concerning the prohibition of donations between husband and wife which is ambiguous, enigmatic, almost incomprehensible. Julian and his disciple, African, hold a contrary view in D. 46,3,38,1. The author critically reviews the main explanations proposed since the time of the Glossators up to now, and sets out a thouroughly new idea: Celsus may have taken into account the widespread bookkeeping usages of the Roman householders. By Justinian’s time, this practice was out of use and almost forgotten, therefore deleted by the compilers.

Keywords: ‚Durchgangserwerb‘ (Celsus); delegatio solvendi; donation between spouses; payment on order; roman bookkeeping; suspended property
