Sob o signo de Maet : considerações sobre o direito no antigo Egipto : contexto, mito e sentido de um «momento» político-sacro-normativo
Paulo Ferreira da Cunha
AbstractMost jurists have no historical background apart from the respective national history of sources and possibly of institutions, which comprises a very limited perspective, especially in the current times. Even those who had the opportunity to study the legal history of a different culture are normally restricted to the principles of Roman law, and even then, centred mostly on its practical cases (to some extent, they are redundant when compared to those today, in what concerns basic techniques), rather than its most important aspect: the spirit of the law. Therefore, the legal history of Ancient Egypt, in a context of stricto sensu pre-juridical norms, may provide an inspiring contrast which may prove a challenge.
