Freedom is the natural ability of everyone to do what he likes, unless it is prohibited by law or by force.”

― Justinian I

 

Justinian’s ‘Corpus Juris Civilis’ is unquestionably the fundamental work on law and jurisprudence! Parts of this work were originally intended to be used by law students, but they were not solely used as a textbook – they carried legal weight …as law! It includes four distinct parts – Codex, Digest, Institutes, and Novellae – each written with a different purpose.

 

Digest’ or ‘Pandectae’ is a collection of juristic treatises taken from various legal writings of Ulpian and Paulus. ‘Codex’ was the Justinian’s attempt at organizing the laws in a systematic manner – each of these works is included in this enormous 16th-century six-volume edition.

 

The Godefroy editions of this iconic work were influential in the law field well into the 20th-century. While Godefroy was known as a jurist, his fame came from his edition of the ‘Corpus’, which went through dozens of editions into the 18th-century.
