Byzantine Legal Culture and Roman Legal Tradition 6 to say nothing of the more
ad hoc forms of justice meted out by large landowners and monasteries (of which
we know very little for the period under examination), judged cases as part of
their broader administrative duties. Although those who were forced to render
judgment without legal training apparently did so with the assistance of symponoi
(administrative functionaries with some knowledge of the law), ultimately justice

We have been discussing the civil law tradition as though it were homogeneous.
Now we must face the unhappy fact that it is really not that simple. The civil law
tradition is a composite of several distinct elements or subtraditions, with
separate origins and developments in different periods of history. In this and the
next few chapters these subtraditions will be described under the following
headings: Roman civil law, canon law, commercial law, the revolution, and legal
science. A brief ...

The tensions between the old and the new, the whole and the parts, or theory
and practice could not have been harmonized by books and lectures alone,
although legal science played an extremely important role in the harmonizing

Jacques Le Goff1 As unjust as it might seem for a historical discussion of
European society to dispense with Greek and Roman antiquity, unjust we must
be for present purposes. (Reference will be made in later chapters, though, to
reincarnations of Greek philosophy and Roman law.) With the nightfall of the
inaptly named 'dark ages' heralded by raiding Germanic tribes, the 'high' classical
culture and Roman Empire receded in the fifth and sixth centuries, in the face of
fragmented, ...

identity throughout their existence. The constants—the sacred character of the ...
We know the history of continental or civil law largely as a history of two periods,
that of roman law and that of modern continental law, beginning with the 're-
discovery' of roman law in the eleventh century AD. Things didn't, however,
happen like ...
