TEMA: La shari‘a o ley sagrada de los musulmanes

La protección de los derechos y las obligaciones personales: los documentos en la ley islámica

Müller, Christian

ABSTRACT

The innovative comparative study of a large corpus of legal documents from the 8th-to 16th century in the cald-database gives new insights into the evolution of sacred law in Islam. By comparing juridical notions/concepts of oral proof (since 10th century) and the binding-precedent-theory for cadi-judgements (13th century) with evidence from documents that safeguard individuals’ rights, the article illustrates the role of the jurists’ legal thinking for applied law which finally be-came identified with shari‘a.
