Reprint of the seventh and final edition of one of the finest translations of the Institutes. The work includes Latin and English text with English commentary. Commissioned by the Emperor Justinian in 530 CE, it restated all existing Roman law. Rediscovered during the late middle ages, it has been the central textbook of Roman law ever since.
