1575 Corpus Juris Justinian INSTITUTES + Novellae FOLIO Byzantine LAW Plantin "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 actually carried legal weight …as law! It includes four distinct parts – Codex, Digest, Institutes, and Novellae – each written with a different purpose.
Following the successes and legal implications of Codex and Digest, 'Novellae Constitutiones' or 'New Constitutions', was written after 534AD. These new laws were enacted following Justinian's reign, and, while credited to Justinian, were compiled by a number of other politicians and legal scholars. Included in this portion of 'Corpus' is a number of edicts that were added sometime in the 12th to 13th-century.
This extremely rare 1575 edition was published by the Plantin Press, a 16th-century publishing company known for their impressive folios – like this edition! This volume contains three distinct title pages – 'Novellae', 'Edicta', and 'Institutes'
