|Spanish term or phrase: ley rituaria|
|Quinto Otrosí digo: Que de conformidad con lo establecido en el Art. 231 de la Ley Rituaria Civil ...|
I can't find any reference to 'rituario/a' anywhere, and given the (poor) quality of the original document, I assume it's a typo. Can anyone help me with this, even if it's just a guess? TIA
|procedural law code, in parenthesis beside the title|
If it appears in capital letters in Spanish, it refers to the written code, but this is the closest equivalent.
Note that there is a Ley Rituaria Civil and a Ley Rituaria Criminal.
Also note that this is not exclusive to Spain, it also exists in some other Spanish-speaking countries.
It is generically used (in lowercase) to refer to the LEC (Ley de Enjuiciamiento Civil) and other texts of procedural law, but it antedates them.
"Rituaria" comes from "rito/a" and "ritamente", an archaic adverb meaning "justly" (Moliner).
Lastly, hope it helps. G'night.

|Thanks! Your research is always impressive. Although I looked everywhere for references,I was about as awake as Trixie's cat by that point (4.30ish) It's a shame we can't share points, because I liked and used Trixie's response (thanks Trixie) but saw and preferred this one after the translation was out of my hands.|

Code of Civil Procedure
I did something I never do: turned to Google, where I found some references and when translated it appeared as "Law
of Civil Procedure" which is actually a word-by-word translation of Ley de Enjuiciamiento civil and is usually translated as Code of Civil Procedure
