The words contravention, crime, and delict were of no value.
The "natural" sources of liability were delict and contract.
We have written to our son touching our vassal's delict, and he must abide his doom, which will most likely be death.
Another point of Gregorian emphasis: no delict is remitted without punishment.
No delict is wiped out without penitence and punishment, in this life or afterwards—let it be in Purgatory and not in Hell!
This 210 difference no doubt arises from the tendency to extend the bounds of a delict and to limit the bounds of a crime.
The earlier laws appear to regard it as a delict which may be compounded for by payment.
Thus recovery of a sum of money by way of penalty for a delict is the historical starting point of liability.
