Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to highlight the mechanism of the vendor’s warranty against eviction by reference to known sources of Roman Law, and to search for its nature, either legal or conventional. The first two parts of the paper will be mostly dedicated to establishing terminology and the evolution of the sale contract in Roman Law, while the next three parts will be dedicated to a punctual analyze of the mechanisms of warranty for eviction by reference to the sale by mancipation, by double stipulation and by consensual contracts. The last part will sum up a conclusion about the nature of the obligation to warrant as it had been previously approached.
