Entstehung, Eigenart und Überlieferung einer hochklassischen Juristenschrift ; Analyse, Neuedition und deutsche Übersetzung
Author: Martin Avenarius
Publisher: Wallstein Verlag
Die grundlegende Untersuchung des bedeutenden nachklassischen lateinischen Rechtstextes. Der pseudo-ulpianische liber singularis regularum ist einer der wenigen römischen Rechtstexte, die außerhalb der justinianischen Sammlung erhalten sind. Der Text ist in einer einzigen Handschrift überliefert und wurde erstmals 1549 herausgegeben. Es handelt sich um eine Darstellung elementarer Rechtsregeln, die lange Zeit für ein Werk des bedeutenden spätklassischen Juristen Ulpian (um 165 bis 223 n. Chr.) gehalten wurde. Die Überzeugung von der Klassizität des Textes schwand, als der liber singularis seit dem Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts unter dem Einfluß interpolationistischer Vorstellungen als nachklassische Schrift unklarer Autorschaft angesehen wurde, bei der man zudem spätere Veränderungen vermutete. Die Arbeit, der die Methoden der modernen Romanistik zugrundeliegen, läßt den liber singularis regularum in neuem Licht erscheinen. Eingehende Analysen des gesamten Textes zeigen, daß der Text im Jahre 180 n. Chr. oder wenig später niedergeschrieben wurde. Man darf heute zwar tatsächlich davon ausgehen, daß Ulpian nicht der Verfasser ist. Gleichwohl bildet der liber singularis regularum ein wichtiges Dokument der spezifisch klassischen Tradition des römischen Rechts, die in der prokulianischen Rechtsschule gepflegt wurde. Besondere Bedeutung kommt daher dem Vergleich des Textes mit den Institutionen des Gaius zu, der der konkurrierenden, naturrechtlich geprägten Rechtsschule der Sabianianer angehörte.

Die Engel des Himmels und der Stellvertreter Gottes auf Erden
Author: Alexandra Hasse-Ungeheuer
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
With his religious politics and his self-representation as the vicar of God on Earth, Justinian I (527-565) had an enduring impact on Late Antiquity. What part did monks, believed to be heavenly angels, play in promoting this notion? This book offers the first exhaustive investigation of Justinian’s personal relations to monkhood and the role of monks in religious and legislative politics.

This collection of essays brings together eighteenth-century scholars from a variety of disciplines, to discuss conversation in the eighteenth century as concept and practice. At the heart of the volume is a simple question: are eighteenth-century conceptualisations of the role and purpose of conversation still relevant or useful to scholars and thinkers today? This volume contains essays by leading scholars of the period as well as early career researchers, and answers a need for a broad-ranging discussion of the concept of conversation in the arts, social sciences and humanities. The long eighteenth century is a particularly fruitful starting point for work on this topic, since ideas about conversation permeated all types of writing in this period, from the early forerunners of scientific textbooks to philosophical dialogues. The collection covers an exceptionally wide range of long-eighteenth-century authors, artists, lawmakers, texts and works of art, and, although the focus of the volume is largely on eighteenth-century Britain, the volume takes note of the rich relationships between continental European thought and British intellectual life in the period, and of the influence of British ideas in the newly independent American republic.

Figuring in myth, religion, law, the military, commerce, and transportation, rivers were at the heart of Rome's increasing exploitation of the environment of the Mediterranean world. In Rivers and the Power of Ancient Rome, Brian Campbell explores the role and influence of rivers and their surrounding landscape on the society and culture of the Roman Empire. Examining artistic representations of rivers, related architecture, and the work of ancient geographers and topographers, as well as writers who describe rivers, Campbell reveals how Romans defined the geographical areas they conquered and how geography and natural surroundings related to their society and activities. In addition, he illuminates the prominence and value of rivers in the control and expansion of the Roman Empire--through the legal regulation of riverine activities, the exploitation of rivers in military tactics, and the use of rivers as routes of communication and movement. Campbell shows how a technological understanding of--and even mastery over--the forces of the river helped Rome rise to its central place in the ancient world.
An Underestimated Aspect of Justinian’s Church Policy
Author: Stanislaw Turlej
Publisher: Wydawnictwo UJ
The book explores the history of Justiniana Prima, a city built by Emperor Justinian I (527-565) in his birthplace near Ni in present-day Serbia. Previous studies focused on determining the city's location, underestimating the significance of analyzing written sources for the reconstruction of this city's genesis and importance. Using information from Emperor Justinian's Novels XI and CXXXI, as well as Book IV of Procopius of Caesarea's De aedificiis, Stanislaw Turlej endeavors to show that Justiniana Prima's historic significance resulted from granting its Church the status of an archbishopric with its own province in 535, which was independent of Rome. Justinian wanted to introduce profound changes to the ecclesiastical organization based on state law.

Many students are familiar with the landmarks of Roman jurisprudence but know little about their background. This is unfortunate because these texts lose a great deal of their meaning when they are extracted from their original social and cultural context. Nasmith's Outline addresses this problem directly by making "that which is understood as Roman history go hand in hand with chronological changes in Roman law, and to furnish the reader and myself with an outline of pegs so arranged as to enable us easily and accurately to store our future acquisitions" (vi). Nasmith's tone is utilitarian, but his work is quite sophisticated. What is more, it is a significant work of cultural history based on a study of legal institutions.
