Title : Adultery in Early Anglo-Saxon Society: Æthelberht 31 in Comparison with Continental Germanic Law [If a married woman committed adultery in early Germanic society, her husband was entitled to retribution. In Anglo-Saxon society, this retribution took the form of a monetary payment directly proportionate to the offended husband’s class status.
