from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The promulgation ( Latin promulgare , publicly proclaim) of a law means that it is put into effect through the first public reading.

This act is directly binding. It was mostly supported by the fact that the residents of the communities in which a law was to come into force were obliged to listen to the reading.

For example, the Bremische Höfegesetz of 1899 was reinstated in force on July 19, 1948 after the interim period of the National Socialist Reichserbhofgesetz (Reichserbhofgesetz ).

Since laws are only published in writing, for example in the German or Austrian Federal Law Gazette, secular regulations are no longer promulgated.

The promulgation of ecclesiastical laws and ordinances continues to be cultivated by the Roman Catholic Church , which promulgates them at the Holy See , at the same time the officially binding publication takes place in the papal gazette, the Acta Apostolicae Sedis .
