 hypotheca

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Hy·po·the·ca n.  Rom. Law An obligation by which property of a debtor was made over to his creditor in security of his debt.
 Note:It differed from pledge in regard to possession of the property subject to the obligation; pledge requiring, simple hypotheca not requiring, possession of it by the creditor. The modern mortgage corresponds very closely with it.
