Acquisition of Possession 'Per Extraneam Personam'

Tijdschrift voor Rechtsgeschiedenis [Legal History Review], Vol. 29, No. 1 (1961), pp. 22-42


The thesis to be maintained is that shortly after the beginning of the Empire it was generally recognised by the jurists that one could acquire possession through one's 'procurator omnium bonorum'; that this was then extended to tutors and curators' and that before the end of the classical period one could acquire possession through any 'extranea persona'. This development can be traced in the texts.
