Irish Manuscripts: Corus Bescna - Contracts

While the Corus Bescna text covers several areas its principle focus is on the law of contract. Its opening line reminds us:

"the world would be evilly situated if express contracts were not binding".

Additional topics covered include: rules of evidence, the duties and rights of husbands and wives, fosterage of children, and inheritance.

It contains further information on general rights and duties such as the duty of the clan to support every clan-member or the right of a father to confiscate his lands from a son who fails to dutifully take care of him.
