Example text

We find an example of the law’s ceasing to apply ex dispensatione misercordiae [out of a dispensation of mercy] in a peculiar passage from Gratian where the canonist states that the Church can elect not to punish a transgression in 26 Chapter One a situation where the transgressive deed has already occurred (pro eventu rei [for the consequence of the thing]: for example in a case where a person who could not accede to the episcopate has in fact already been ordained as bishop). Paradoxically, the law is not applied here precisely because the transgressive act has effectively already been committed and punishing it would anyway entail negative consequences for the Church.

36 Chapter Two Take on the one hand the opposition between norms of law and norms of the realization of law, between the norm and its concrete application. Commissarial dictatorship shows that the moment of application is autonomous with respect to the norm as such, and that the norm “can be suspended, without thereby ceasing to remain in force” (Schmitt 1921, 137). That is, commissarial dictatorship represents a state of the law in which the law is not applied, but remains in force. Instead, sovereign dictatorship (in which the old constitution no longer exists and the new one is present in the “minimal” form of constituent power) represents a state of the law in which the law is applied, but is not formally in force.

We find an implicit critique of the state of exception in Dante’s De monarchia. 22). The idea that a suspension of law may be necessary for the common good is foreign to the medieval world. 10 It is only with the moderns that the state of necessity tends to be included within the juridical order and to appear as a true and proper “state” of the law. The principle according to which necessity defines a unique situation in which the law loses its vis obligandi (this is the sense of the adage necessitas legem non habet ) is reversed, becoming the principle according to which necessity constitutes, so to speak, the ultimate ground and very source of the law.
