History[ edit ] In medieval and early modern Britain, the term non compos mentis was often related to religious or mysterious phenomena such as diabolical influence. From the seventeenth century, the condition was increasingly viewed as a mental illness , also described as insanity or madness. In the finding of a jury , the deceased who was stigmatized felo de se would be excluded from burial in consecrated ground and would forfeit their estate to the Crown, while these penalties would not apply to the deceased affirmed non compos mentis, i.

The state of mind of self-killers at the time they committed their fatal deed was crucial. To be judged guilty of "self-murder", one had to be sane. Men and women who killed themselves when they were mad or otherwise mentally incompetent were considered innocent.

The verdict would be made by a jury. The penalty for suicide in England originated in the ancient world and evolved gradually into their early modern form; similar laws and customs existed in many parts of Europe. Born of domestic beliefs, the ritual of punishing suicide, which is usually concerned with the suicidal corpse, embodies the notion that suicide is polluting, and that the suicide should be ostracized by the community of the living and the dead.

The theological and legal severity increased in the High Middle Ages. After the civil war, political and social changes, judicial and ecclesiastical severity gave way to official leniency for most people who died by suicide. Non compos mentis verdicts increased greatly, and felo de se verdicts became as rare as non compos mentis had been two centuries earlier. Although typically used in law, this term can also be used metaphorically or figuratively; e.

It usually refers to a person has no rational mind or judgement, and whose behaviour is nonsense. Some relating words such as "insane", "mad" and " lunatic " used more frequently in psychiatry ; however, the laws against suicide and the verdicts felo de se and non compos mentis had never faded until the late nineteenth century.
