Affidatio

Affidatio

(betrothal), a term which probably came into use about the 10th century. It seems to belong to the period of fully developed feudalism. The earliest example is of the year 1287; and the forms given in which the word occurs, from the rituals of Limoges and of Rheims, are more modern yet,' to judge from the passages in French which are intermixed in them.
