Art/Literary - Law (general) / early medieval European law
German term or phrase: Rechtsraum
Is this a syn. for legal status (Rechtl. Stellung)? '...given their own place in law'? Here's the context -
Um Früchte und Haustiere zu schützen, waren die Gärten des frühen Mittelalters eingehegt (Hortus conclusus), sie beanspruchten einen eigenen Rechtsraum.
(an odd omission in L'scheidt)
Thanks in advance..

Explanation:

Notes to answerer
Asker: Certainly looks helpful (and so fast - thank you!) - 'represented a legal domain of their own', then?
