MAYER LUX, Laura  and  VERA VEGA, Jaime. History of the Material Object of the Punishable Crime of Forgery. Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2015, n.37, pp.325-345. ISSN 0716-5455.

This work analyses, from a historical approach, the document as the material object of forgery. To do this, Roman law regulations, Medieval law regulations and some codes used as basis for the Chilean Criminal Code are examined. It also establishes that there is something common in said legislations, from which a thread of continuity can be inferred from the historical development of the material object of the punishable crime of forgery. Said stages must not be understood individually; therefore, it rather urges us to consider said historical evolution as a unit in time.

Keywords : Document forgery; Will forgery; Edict forgery; Royal documents forgery.
