Was ist die Ehe - Ruckgrat einer stabilen Gesellschaftsordnung oder Kernmodell patriarchalischer Herrschaftsstruktur? Die Vielfalt von Meinungen daruber ist verwirrend. John Witte untersucht das komplexe Zusammenspiel von Recht, Theologie und dem Konzept der Ehe im Abendland. Er verfolgt die christlichen Normen und die abendlandischen rechtlichen Prinzipien zur Ehe und zum Familienleben besonders in den letzten 500 Jahren. Dabei stellt der Autor den besonderen Beitrag eines jeden Modells - des sakramentalen-katholischen, des lutherischen, calvinistischen, anglikanischen und des aufklarerischen Ehekonzepts - zur Ehetradition des Abendlandes jenseits moralischer Kategorisierungen heraus.
