Roman Law: An Introduction offers a clear and accessible introduction to Roman law for students of any legal tradition. In the thousand years between the Law of the Twelve Tables and Justinian’s massive Codification, the Romans developed the most sophisticated and comprehensive secular legal system of Antiquity, which remains at the heart of the civil law tradition of Europe, Latin America, and some countries of Asia and Africa. Roman lawyers created new legal concepts, ideas, rules, and mechanisms that most Western legal systems still apply. The study of Roman law thus facilitates understanding among people of different cultures by inspiring a kind of legal common sense and breadth of knowledge. Based on over twenty-five years’ experience teaching Roman law, this volume offers a comprehensive examination of the subject, as well as a historical introduction which contextualizes the Roman legal system for students who have no familiarity with Latin or knowledge of Roman history. More than a compilation of legal facts, the book captures the defining characteristics and principal achievements of Roman legal culture through a millennium of development.

Patchworkfamilien in der Spätantike thematisiert das Phänomen der Wiederverheiratung nach Scheidung oder Verwitwung in Gesellschaft, Recht und Mentalität der jüdischen, heidnischen und römisch-christlichen Antike. Postuliert wird eine Kohärenz zwischen einem im Wandel befindlichen jüdischen Eherecht im ersten nachchristlichen Jahrhundert und der beginnenden Ausbildung einer neuartig christlichen Sicht auf das Gebilde Familie. Der im jüdischen Recht schwindende Rechtsschutz für ersteheliche Kinder in Patchworkfamilien gehörte zum konkreten Erfahrungshorizont der ersten Christen und kann mit verantwortlich zeichnen für die reaktionäre Herausbildung einer konservativ-christlichen Scheidungsmoral.

The notion and understanding of law penetrated society in Ancient Rome to a degree unparalleled in modern times. The poet Juvenal, for instance, described the virtuous man as a good soldier, faithful guardian, incorruptible judge and honest witness. This book is concerned with four central questions: Who made the law? Where did a Roman go to discover what the law was? How has the law survived to be known to us today? And what procedures were there for putting the law into effect? In The Sources of Roman Law, the origins of law and their relative weight are described in the light of developing Roman history. This is a topic that appeals to a wide range of readers: the law student will find illumination for the study of the substantive law; the student of history will be guided into an appreciation of what Roman law means as well as its value for the understanding and interpretation of Roman history. Both will find invaluable the description of how the sources have survived to inform our legal system and pose their problems for us.

Der Band prasentiert Max Webers romischrechtliche Habilitationsschrift von 1891, mit der er in standigem engen Konnex von juristischen und agrargeschichtlichen Fragestellungen das damals junge Gebiet der Sozial- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte des Altertums betrat. Mit festem Zugriff auf das vielfach schwierige Quellenmaterial vom Corpus der romischen Feldmesser und den Agrarschriftstellern bis zu den spatantiken Rechtskompilationen entwarf er ein vielschichtiges Gesamtbild von Grundfragen der romischen Agrarentwicklung, die in seiner Sicht von der hypothetischen Flurgemeinschaft der Fruhzeit uber die Mobilisierung des Bodens bis hin zu einem ausgesprochenen agrarischen "Kapitalismus" und von der schonungslos geschilderten Sklavenwirtschaft zum kaiserzeitlichen schollengebundenen Kolonat fuhrte und die zugleich einen scharferen Blick auch auf die allgemeine politische Entwicklung Roms ermoglicht. Die Quellen, aber auch indirekte Literaturbezuge werden durch den Erlauterungsapparat, die Verzeichnisse und Register erschlossen und ermoglichen so eine vertiefte wissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit dem Text. Die Einleitung des Bandherausgebers fuhrt in die Anfange der wissenschaftlichen Karriere Max Webers ein und erlautert die wissenschaftsgeschichtlichen Hintergrunde des Werkes, das auch den wichtigsten Ausgangspunkt fur die weitere Beschaftigung Max Webers mit dem Altertum bildete.

Diese Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit dem Causaproblem im deutschen Bereicherungsrecht. Sie strebt dabei nicht nach einer einheitlichen Begriffsbestimmung der "causa," da ein solcher Versuch im Gebiet des Bereicherungsrechts weder vernunftig noch moglich ware. Vielmehr liegt das Ziel dieser Arbeit darin, durch eine rechtshistorische Untersuchung die dogmatische Bedeutung des Tatbestandsmerkmals "sine causa" zu beleuchten. Es wird dargelegt, wie der Causabegriff ursprunglich in das Bereicherungsrecht eingedrungen ist, wie die Wortgruppe "sine causa "entstanden ist, welche Bedeutungswandlung und Erscheinungsformen sie in der weiteren Entwicklung erlebt hat, und was fur eine Haltung die heutige Dogmatik gegenuber den vorigen Causalehren einnimmt."

Medieval Sovereignty examines the idea of sovereignty in the Middle Ages and asks if it can be considered a fundamental element of medieval constitutional order. Francesco Maiolo analyzes the writings of Marsilius of Padua (1275/80–1342/43) and Bartolous of Saxoferrato (1314–57) and assesses their relative contributions as early proponents of popular sovereignty. Both are credited with having provided the legal justification for medieval popular government. Maiolo’s cogent reconsideration of this primacy is an important addition to current medieval studies.

For centuries, international trade has been seen as essential to the wealth and power of nations. More recently we have started to understand its problematic role as an engine of distributive justice. In this compelling book Frank J. Garcia proposes a new way to evaluate, construct and manage international trade - one that is based on norms of economic justice, comparative advantage and national interest. Garcia examines three ways to conceptualize the problem of trade and global justice, drawn from Rawlsian liberalism, communitarianism and consent theory. These approaches illustrate specific issues of importance to the way global justice has been theorized, offering a pluralistic mode of arguing for global justice and highlighting the unique modes of discourse we employ when engaging with global justice and their implications for conceptualizing and arguing the problem. Garcia suggests a new direction for trade agreements built around truly consensual trade negotiations and the kind of international economic system they would structure.

In the ancient Greco-Roman world, it was common practice to curse or bind an enemy or rival by writing an incantation on a tablet and dedicating it to a god or spirit. These curses or binding spells, commonly called defixiones were intended to bring other people under the power and control of those who commissioned them. More than a thousand such texts, written between the 5th Century B.C.E. and the 5th Century C.E., have been discovered from North Africa to England, and from Syria to Spain. Extending into every aspect of ancient life--athletic and theatrical competitions, judicial proceedings, love affairs, business rivalries, and the recovery of stolen property--they shed light on a new dimension of classical study previously inaccessible. Here, for the first time, these texts have been translated into English with a substantial translator's introduction revealing the cultural, social, and historical context for the texts. This book will interest historians, classicists, scholars of religion, and those concerned with ancient magic.
