ź Possessio ╗ o ź dominium honorum ╗? Riflessioni sulla proprietÓ privata e la ź rimessa dei debiti ╗ in Levitico 25,
Antonianum, 70/3-4 (1995) p. 333-348
SUMMARY: The author of this study has in mind the evaluation of the conception of « dominium bonorum » in GS n. 1555 in the light of O.T. data, and, more precisely, of O.T. juridical texts, with a particular consideration of Lev 25. Notwithstanding the socio-cultural and economic diversity of the world, it is, however, possible to draw theological principles, which are valid today. Above all dominates the fundamental principle that the earth, given to man as a gift by God, is given to him as an usufruct (on this principle is founded the right of property), but the earth belongs to God. It is the characterising fact of the O.T., facing the various old Middle Eastern testimonies, which the author brings forth abundantly.
