This is the first in-depth study of "Title II, Book IV of Alfonse X the Wise", a legal document based on the canonical laws that infiltrated the social life of thirteenth century Spain. It is a valuable scope to the history and development of the philosophical doctrines and theological mentality of the Latin Fathers of the Church that molded every aspect of the matrimonial behavior for the Christians during the Middle Ages. "Title II, Book IV of Alfonse X the Wise" is a legal document based on the canonical laws that infiltrated the social life of thirteenth century Spain. It is a valuable scope to the history and development of the philosophical doctrines and theological mentality of the Latin Fathers of the Church that molded every aspect of the matrimonial behavior for the Christians during this time. Its fundamental doctrine about matrimony is rooted on the biblical philosophy that all relationships between men and wives are one of body and soul, indissoluble on a spiritual level, but permitted to be broken in our physical reality under specific circumstances. "The Title II" laws cover a variety of topics, such as incest, adultery and the prohibition of matrimony amongst Moors, Jews, Christians and heretics. Its legal value cannot be judged without its undeniable doctrinal purpose permeating every one of its nineteen laws. Fundamentally, the "Title II" transmits a uniformed message that promotes matrimony as, indeed, a sacred union protected by Church ecclesiastical laws, and any violation to them will render the relation invalid or permanently null.
