About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1912, this book presents a running commentary on the Institutes of Gaius and the Code of Justinian, with an eye to the ways in which laws were practically applied to Roman life. Buckland addresses such thorny legal issues as the ownership and manumission of slaves, property law, and intestacy. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Roman law.
