Epochen des Protokolls

Author(s): Niehaus, Michael


The age of the transcript begins with the end of the Roman republic; its actual adoption as medium of Law begins with the introduction of written inquisitional procedure in the 13 century. The establishment of truth as a legal principle necessitates the transcription of an excess of data, in which the subject becomes the record's object. At the same time, the transcript turns out to be a grey area, which cannot be legally standardized, because no rule can ultimately define what belongs to the record and what doesn't.
