Considering all the people of the time understood the issue of slavery. in 150 to 200, explain the following law and how the people in the society might have changed or regulated their behavior based on reading this law. what would you do? clearly state why you would make that choice. 16.if anyone receives into his house a runaway male or female slave of the court, or of a freedman, and does not bring it out at the public proclamation of the major domus, the master of the house shall be put to death
If you bring a runaway slave into your home and don't report it, the head of the household will be put to death. I'm guessing that during the time, kidnapping people for more labor work to be done was illegal, especially when it was done without permission by The Public Proclomation of the Major Domus.
The Way Society Changed:
Before the law was passed, this would be done constantly to keep possessions they didn't want to trade or to save currency (whatever currency was at the time). After it was passed, people had to start notifying the PPMD about the enslavements so their heads won't get hacked off.
What I would do:
I would do the right thing and just tell them "Hey can i have this slave?" and they'd go "Okay whatever" and I wouldn't get my head chopped off.
Hope this helps, man.
