Notas sobre el Matrimonio en el oriente y occidente cristiano durante la Antigüedad tardía y el alto Medioevo

This paper analyzes a comparison between some issues related to marriage in Christian Mediterranean, in both the West and the Byzantine area. The first section briefly presents the social and legal context of the period, as well as the role that the institution of marriage and the nuclear family had in late Antiquity and the early Middle Ages. Finally, some notions of the Christian conception of marriage are treated. In the second section, several assumptions or requirements of marriage and betrothal that are common to both sides of Christendom are ana- lyzed, especially impediments to marriage on account of kinship ​
