Abstract: »Kidnapping of women and rape are judged in the same way. If the woman consents, the act is classified as marriage. For marriage between free persons and slaves the sentence is death penalty in LB, loss of freedom in LS. – The comparison between the two laws shows that LS 13,8 must be erroneous. – Glosses in LS: scodo ›(partial) penalty‹; antomia ›penalty‹; altheofaltheo ›attack on a housemaid‹; honema ›shame‹, andras theo ›girl of another (man)‹; gange-haldo ›stopping of a procession‹; frio-lasina ›rape of a free woman‹; **ambaht-mundio ›assumption of power over a woman by a servant‹; **abna tho wilendemo ›during the lifetime of the husband‹. LS 15,2 and 25,7 are dark.« [Source: Beiträge zur Geschichte der deutschen Sprache und Literatur.]
