testamentum tripertitum

testamentum tripertitum

(trI-p[schwa]r-tI-t[schwa]m). [Latin ¡°tripartite will¡±] Roman law A will made without interruption, with seven witnesses to seal it, and signed by the testator.

? This form of will was valid in Justinian’s law. It was called ¡°tripartite¡± because the authority for various parts of it derived from three sources: the civil law (requiring that the will be made at one and the same time before witnesses); the praetor’s edict (requiring that there be seven witnesses and that they must seal it); and imperial constitutions (requiring that the testator must sign at the end).
