L'abandon progressif du droit romain. • L'effondrement de l'État romain et l'essor de l'aristocratie en Gaule franque entre le VIe et le VIIIe siècle entraînent l'effacement du droit public et l'oubli des textes juridiques impériaux. Toutefois, dans les régions fortement romanisées telles que le royaume de Burgondie, l'Aquitaine, la Septimanie wisigothique ou la Provence, des éléments du Code théodosien sont repris par les législations barbares (Loi romaine des Burgondes, Bréviaire d'Alaric), et continuent à être utilisés.

Roman Law: Questions and Answers

Roman Law was the law that was in effect throughout the age of antiquity in the City of Rome and later in the Roman Empire. When Roman rule over Europe came to an end, Roman Law was largely--though not completely--forgotten. In Medieval times (from about the 11th century onward) there was a renewed interest in the law of the Romans. Initially, Roman Law was only studied by scholars and taught at the universities, Bologna being the first place where Roman Law was taught.

The Twelve Tables

Tradition tells us that the code was composed by a commission, first of ten and then of twelve men, in 451-450 B.C., was ratifed by the Centuriate Assembly in 449 B.C., was engraved on twelve tablets (whence the title), which were attached to the Rostra before the Curia in the Forum of Rome. THE TWELVE TABLES. This is the earliest attempt by the Romans to create a CODE OF LAW; it is also the earliest (surviving) piece of literature coming from the Romans.


In the midst of a perennial struggle for legal and social protection and civil rights between the privileged class (patricians) and the common people (plebeians) a commission of ten men (Decemviri) was appointed (ca. 455 B.C.) to draw up a code of law which would be binding on both parties and which the magistrates (the 2 consuls) would have to enforce impartially. The commission produced enough statutes (most of them were already `customary law' anyway) to fill TEN TABLETS, but this attempt seems not to have been entirely satisfactory--especially to the plebeians. A second commission of ten was therefore appointed (450 B.C.) and two additional tablets were drawn up. The originals, said to have been inscribed on bronze, were probably destroyed when the Gauls sacked and burned Rome in the invasion of 387 B.C.
