Moyle, J.B. The Institutes of Justinian. Translated into English with an Index. Fifth Edition. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1913. viii, 220 pp. Reprinted 2002 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2001041401. ISBN 1-58477-185-2. Cloth. $90. * An English translation, with a thorough index, of Justinian's Institutes. After assuming the throne of the East Roman or Byzantine Empire in 527, Justinian (Favius Petrus Sabbatius Justinianus) [A.D. 483-565] sought to revise the most important legal writings of the original republic and empire, including the body of laws that had accumulated during the last 300 years. His revision of the Institutes of Gaius [c.A.D. 115-c.180] is perhaps the most significant volume to emerge from this program. Written around A.D. 161, it is an elementary treatise on Roman private law that served as a standard text for 300 years. Justinian's revision brought the original up to date while maintaining its qualities of clear exposition and perspicuous judgment. It was later combined with three other revisions, the Digest, Code, and Novels to form the Corpus Juris Civilis, a profound influence on European law from the tenth century onwards.

A landmark in the study of Roman law Reprint of the only edition. The final edition of Ortolan's Explication Historique des Instituts de Justinien (1873) is a vast three-volume work containing a history of Roman law, a treatise on Roman jurisprudence and a complete commentary on the Institutes, the textbook of Justinian's law from the Corpus Juris Civilis. It was the standard textbook in its day and often the basis for examinations. Conceived for students with limited time and fluency in French, Mears's Analysis is a skillful condensation of Ortolan's work. Still a remarkably comprehensive study, it provides an excellent contextual overview of Roman law. CONTENTS PART I.

Excerpt from The Institutes of Justinian: Illustrated by English Law Some of the comparisons in the succeeding pages may not meet with universal acceptance. I have tried, as far as possible, to avoid far - fetched analogies, but in occupying a ground hitherto almost untouched, I cannot hope to have avoided some errors. I have dealt with antiquarian matters less than I should like to have done, but it was necessary to confine the work within moderate bounds.

The imperial majesty should be armed with laws as well as glorified with arms that there may be good government in times both of war and of peace and the ruler of Rome may not only be victorious over his enemies but may show himself as scrupulously regardful of justice as triumphant over his conquered foes.

The Corpus Iuris Civilis, a distillation of the entire body of Roman law, was directed by the Emperor Justinian and published in a.d. 533. The Institutes, the briefest of the four works that make up the Corpus, is considered to be the cradle of Roman law and remains the best and clearest introduction to the subject. A Companion to Justinian's "Institutes" will assist the modern-day reader of the Institutes, and is specifically intended to accompany the translation by Peter Birks and Grant McLeod, published by Cornell in 1987. The book offers an intelligent and lucid guide to the legal concepts in the Institutes. The essays follow its structure and take up its principal subjects—for example, slavery, marriage, property, and capital and noncapital crimes—and give a thorough account of the law relating to each of them. Throughout, the authors explain technical Latin vocabulary and legal terms.

When Justinian became sole ruler of the Byzantine Empire in A.D. 527, he ordered the preparation of three compilations of Roman law that together formed the Corpus Juris Civilis. These works have become known individually as the Code, which collected the legal pronouncements of the Roman emperors, the Institutes, an elementary student's textbook, and the Digest, by far the largest and most highly prized of the three compilations. The Digest was assembled by a team of sixteen academic lawyers commissioned by Justinian in 533 to cull everything of value from earlier Roman law. It was for centuries the focal point of legal education in the West and remains today an unprecedented collection of the commentaries of Roman jurists on the civil law. Commissioned by the Commonwealth Fund in 1978, Alan Watson assembled a team of thirty specialists to produce this magisterial translation, which was first completed and published in 1985 with Theodor Mommsen's Latin text of 1878 on facing pages. This paperback edition presents a corrected English-language text alone, with an introduction by Alan Watson. Links to the three other volumes in the set: Volume 1 [Books 1-15] Volume 2 [Books 16-29] Volume 4 [Books 41-50]
