The Medieval Glossators

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

The Medieval Glossators, constitutes one of the main non-theological sources of law during the High Middle Ages, they translated and compiled the classical Roman works into the languages ​​of vulgar Latin, through the use of the glosses─small comments to the text.

Their origin as a formal school dates without discussion at the University of Bologna (Italy), later they expanded throughout Europe, because of what, the classical law texts began to flourish again, and to be rediscovered in the academic sphere.

This pre-Renaissance influence occurs within a framework of relative social stability, together with the birth of medieval European universities, and it would be decisive to preserve the legal forms of Roman law, within Western law.
