Raptio (in archaic or literary English rendered as rape) is a Latin term referring to the abduction of women, either for marriage (e.g. kidnapping or elopement) or enslavement (particularly sexual slavery). In Roman Catholic canon law, raptio refers to the legal prohibition of matrimony if the bride was abducted forcibly (Canon 1089 CIC). Frauenraub, originally from German, is used in English in the field of art history.
