The History of Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

The history of Roman law is the continuity of political and legal events that occurred from the year 753 a. C.─foundation of Rome─until 533 d. C.─Justinian compilation─in which Roman law flourished and developed.

After this, we can count at least another millennium of influence, development and study of post-Roman law in medieval Europe, from 506 AD─Breviary of Alaric─until the year 1583─Corpus Iuris Civilis─among the nations that were formed after the fall of Rome.

Thus, Roman law would remain alive for just over two thousand years, covering the entire historical period of classical antiquity and feudalism; becoming at the beginning of the modern age an exclusively historical discipline.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
