Capitis Diminutio Maxima (Name in ALL CAPITALS)
For purposes of understanding one's legal or commercial status under
the Admiralty system (the law system used in England, Canada and much
of the US), it is necessary to examine the curious use of all CAPS
-Capitis Diminutio Maxima- in legal and domestic income tax forms,
credit cards & statements, loans, mortgages, speeding & parking
tickets, car documents, road tax, court summons etc. While seemingly a
trite concern, this apparently small detail has extremely deep
significance for all of us!
Gage Canadian Dictionary 1983 Sec. 4 defines Capitalize adj. as "To take advantage of - To use to ones own advantage."
Blacks Law Dictionary -- Revised 4th Edition 1968, provides a more comprehensive definition as follows ...
Capitis Diminutio (meaning the diminishing of status through the use
of capitalization) In Roman law. A diminishing or abridgment of
personality; a loss or curtailment of a man's status or aggregate of
legal attributes and qualifications.
Capitis Diminutio Minima (meaning a minimum loss of status through
the use of capitalization, e.g. John Doe) - The lowest or least
comprehensive degree of loss of status. This occurred where a man's
family relations alone were changed. It happened upon the arrogation
[pride] of a person who had been his own master, (sui juris,) [of his
own right, not under any legal disability] or upon the emancipation of
one who had been under the patria potestas. [Parental authority] It
left the rights of liberty and citizenship unaltered. See Inst. 1, 16,
pr.; 1, 2, 3; Dig. 4, 5, 11; Mackeld. Rom.Law, 144.
Capitis Diminutio Media (meaning a medium loss of status through the
use of capitalization, e.g. John DOE) - A lessor or medium loss of
status. This occurred where a man loses his rights of citizenship, but
without losing his liberty. It carried away also the family rights.
Capitis Diminutio Maxima (meaning a maximum loss of status through
the use of capitalization, e.g. JOHN DOE or DOE JOHN) - The highest or
most comprehensive loss of status. This occurred when a man's condition
was changed from one of freedom to one of bondage, when he became a
slave. It swept away with it all rights of citizenship and all family
Diminutio. Lat. In civil law. Diminution; a taking away; loss or depravation.
Capite. - Lat. By the head.
