The most important creation of the Romans was their law. In this book, Dr Tellegen-Couperus discusses the way in which the Roman jurists created and developed law and the way in which Roman law has come down to us. Special attention is given to questions such as `who were the jurists and their law schools' and to the close connection between jurists and the politics of their time.


`An admirable text-book which makes even the intricacies of Justinian's legislation perfectly clear.'Greece & Rome

`This book gives a thorough historical background and makes a clear connection between Roman law and society.'Computerrecht
