Excerpt
Excerpt: PART I. CONDITION OF THE SLAVE. CHAPTER I. DEFINITION AND GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS. THE Institutes tell us that all men are either slaves or free, and both liberty and slavery are defined by Justinian in terms borrowed from Florentinus. Libertas, he tells us, est naturalis facultas eius quod cuique facere libet nisi si quid vi aut iure prohibetur. No one has defined liberty well: of this definition, which, literally understood, would make everyone free, the only thing to be said at present for our purpose is that it assumes a state of liberty to be natural. Servitus, he says, est constitutio iuris gentium qua quis dominio alieno contra naturam subicitur. Upon this definition two remarks may be made.
