Summary/Abstract: The article focuses on the origin of the concept for the inheritance of debts. Its purpose is to discover the Roman roots of this responsibility, to argument their relationship with the Roman familia and to trace its development in the contemporary law. It is argumented that the responsibility of the heirs for the hereditary debts has arisen in Roman law and probably in an early stage of its development. Its origin is associated with the community between the members of the Roman familia in the rights and obligations and with the thesis for the continuation of the person of the deceased pater familias by his heirs. In classical Roman law, on this ground rises the concept for the universal succession, which is a specific for the modern law of the continental legal family.
