Definition of INFORTIATUM


INFORTIATUM

civil law. The second part of the Digest or Pandects
of Justinian, is called infortiatum: see Digest. This part, which
commences with the third title of the twenty-fourth book, and ends
with the thirty-eighth book, was thus called because it was the
middle part, which, it was said, was supported and fortified by the
two others. Some have supposed that this name was given to it,
because it treats of successions, substitutions, and other
important matters, and being, more used than the others, produced
greater fees to the lawyers.
