The Theodosian Code, put together under the Eastern Roman Emperor Theodosius II, is a compliation of the laws dating from 312 to 438 AD, when the code was published. It brought order to a vast unmanageable body of law and formed part of the basis for the sixth-century Institutes of Justinian, fundamental to later jurisprudence. This book is an important collection of articles, well established as an essential resource for students of Roman law, long unavailable and here published in paperback for the first time with a new preface and updated bibliography. Contributors: Simon Corcoran; Brian Croke; Judith Evans Grubbs; Jill Harries; Tony Honore; David Hunt; John Matthews; Boudewijn Sirks; Mark Vessey; Dafydd Walters; Ian more
