Description

'Legal Structures and the Theodosian Code': This paper explored the composition of the commission charged with drafting the Theodosian Code. It argued that the composition of the commission, largely made up of civil servants and with jurists in a minority, had an impact upon the internal arrangement of topics in the Theodosian Code. The paper also explored the interaction between Roman private law and the Theodosian Code and concluded that its treatment of private law may shed light on the state of private law during the fifth century AD.
