Los proyectos constitucionales de Francisco de Miranda y el Derecho publico romano

P. 339-356.

The article deals with three constitutional projects of Francisco de Miranda, distinguished Venezuelan.   It is devoted to analyzes of the characteristics of the project of 1798, based on the experience of British constitutional law and public law of Ancient Rome. Special attention is focused on provisions of the projects  of  1801 and 1808: on temporary public power  during the war of colonies  for independence from Spain and on federal government after the liberation. F.Miranda  used for these projects a constitutional experience of many countries. One of the sources of his intellectual reflection was the constitution of Ancient Rome, the most important elements of which were people`s assembleis and magistracy. These institutes were adopted by F.Miranda and creatively impleamented according to specific conditions of Ibero-America.
