MONTEMAYOR ACEVES, Martha Elena. Contenidos jurídicos en el relato de Cupido y Psique de Apuleyo. Nova tellus [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.2, pp.245-261. ISSN 0185-3058.

It is interesting to approach Roman Law from other sources non strictly legal, such as the literary ones, since they frequently provide information about standard precepts in society. In this article the aim is to look for their legal contents, such as Roman institutions concerning marriage and slavery, that are found in the story of Cupid and Psyche, the main part of The Golden Ass by Apuleius. It must be emphazised that this author devoted not only to philosophy and literary studies, but also applied himself as a lawyer part of his life, dealing with cases of particular citizens, and even defending himself against an accusation for practicing magic.

Palavras-chave : Apuleyo; Cupido; derecho romano; esclavitud; matrimonio; Psique.
