Eigenklo¨ster, 7. 34 See Schultze, Augustin und der Seelteil; Valdeavellano, ‘Cuota’, 133–7, usefully summarizes his argument. The free share was not invariably for pious donations (Burgundian Lex Gundobada 1. 1; 24. 5; 51. 1: MGH Leges, II. i, 41, 63, 82–3). 35 Schultze, Seelteil, 184–90 (see below, p. 734). Schultze saw Western practice as dominated by Augustine’s formula for ‘making Christ one’s heir’ to an extra son’s portion (so safeguarding one’s children’s rights); Bruck thought this dominant only for the Lombards, others giving a minimum regardless of family size (Kirchenva¨ter und soziales Erbrecht, 76–104, 147–67).

Vives. c. 19 (ibid. 131). 12 This is forbidden, and ‘everything shall belong to the bishop’s government and power (potestas)’. Clearer still was Toledo IV in 633: ‘builders of churches should know that they have no power over the things they have given to those churches, but . . 16 In any case the tendency of legislation was to attribute the endowment firmly to the individual church; and by the seventh century some legislation, both Spanish and Gaulish, is intended to safeguard the founders’ intentions and prevent exploitation by the bishops.
