1. It is impossible to give an exact date for the beginning of the development of Roman law. The first legal text the content of which is known to us in some detail is the law of the twelve tables. It was drafted by a committee of ten men (decemviri legibus scribundis) in the year 449 BC. The fragments which have been preserved show that it was not a law code in the modern sense. It did not aim to provide a complete and coherent system of all applicable rules or to give legal solutions for all p...

1. Roman Law was the law that was in effect throughout the age of antiquity in the City of Rome and later in the Roman Empire. When Roman rule over Europe came to an end, Roman law was largely–though not completely–forgotten. (Ancient Rome, Compton’s 96) The earliest code of Roman Law was the Law of the Twelve Tables. It was formalized in 451-450BC from existing oral law by ten magistrates, called decemvirs, and inscribed on tablets of bronze, which were posted in the principal Roman Forum. According to tradition, the code was drawn up to appease the plebs, who maintained that their liberties were not adequately protected by the unwritten law as interpreted by patrician judges. (Ancient Rome, Compton’s 96) Originally ten tablets of laws were inscribed; two more tablets were added the following year. The tablets were destroyed in the sack of Rome by the Gauls in 390BC, but a number of the laws are known through references in later Latin literature. The Twelve Tables covered all categori...

1. Roman law grew amorphously from several sources over a thousand years. These sources were divided into unwritten law(ius non scriptum) and written law(ius scriptum). Unwritten law referred to custom in Roman times, although by the early modern period in Europe, customs were accepted as written law in many places. Written law for the Romans was divided into six categories: acts(leges), resolutions or plebeian statutes(plebiscita), senate resolutions (senatus consulta), imperial laws or constitutions (constitutiones principium), magistrates' edicts (edicta), and jurists' responses or interpretations (responsa prudentium).Contradictions in the laws occurred because these numerous sources were neither coordinated nor routinely collected. The early attempts to organize Roman law included theInstitutes of Gaius in the second century c.e. and theTheodosian Code under Emperor Theodosius II in 438 c.e., but these were incomplete. The final compilation of theCorpus Juris Civilis under Justini...

1. The concept "Roman Law"1 has assumed various meanings in the course of time. Thus it refers to the Roman legal system in its historical aspect, the Roman law tradition, that is, the persistence of Roman law in the various European legal systems, the Common Law, German Pandectism, and finally today's Roman law studies. The subject of the latter is Roman law in its content and history. It is not possible to treat Roman law here in the last-named respect. This account will therefore relate mainly to Roman law in the sense of the legal system of ancient Rome, the rediscovery of Roman law in the Middle Ages, and its spread in the single European countries up to the 19th century. Particular attention is paid to the rise and development of this law, to those involved in its creation, and to its sources. The development of Roman law begins, in the traditional view, with the origins of Rome in 753 BC, and ends with the death of Emperor Justinian I (482–565). Justinian had had Roman law codif...
