'The Codex Justinianus, a collection selected in the sixth century AD from thousands of responses to enquiries made by the imperial legal secretariat, is an unrivalled source for the actual lives and concerns of Roman citizens all over the Empire, and the changing policies of their rulers, over half a millennium. A team of ancient historians and academic lawyers has now produced an accurate and comprehensible English translation, based on that made by the late Justice Fred H. Blume almost a century ago, and with a facing Latin and Greek text. There are several valuable extra features, especially a glossary explaining Latin legal terms, footnotes ... explaining the relevant legal rules and procedures ... [and] copious provision of cross-references to related passages in the CJ and other major Roman legal writings. Ancient historians and legal historians alike have cause to be grateful to the compilers. This is the edition on which, from now on, they may confidently rely.' Jane F. Gardner, Emeritus Professor of Ancient History, University of Reading
'With this annotated translation, we finally possess a complete and reliable version, in English, of one of the monuments of Roman law. The editors and translators (not to mention the ghost of Fred Blume) are owed a profound thanks for this important service to anyone interested in the history of the world's most influential legal system. The Codex is an unparalleled source of Roman law in action and often shows us how the rules were brought to bear on the real problems encountered by the inhabitants of the empire. This translation will be an aid to any student of law and life in the Roman world.' Kyle Harper, Senior Vice President and Provost, and Professor of Classics and Letters, University of Oklahoma
