Codex of Justinian

Today marks the publication of the eagerly awaited new translation into English of the Codex of Justinian by Bruce Frier et al. This new edition, the first since the rather flawed translation into English by Scott, consists of the Latin and Greek texts with the English facing. It is loosely based on the translation by Fred Blume. Although the price is horrific, it will no doubt be a welcome addition to many libraries:

One Response to Codex of Justinian

  1. Ross Macdonald says:

    The text is enhanced by a lengthy and wideranging introductory chapter analysing the development through time of the Codex text, along with a critical explanation of the relationship of the translation itself to Justice Blume’s earlier and highly-regarded version (from which it departs from time to time). Cambridge University Press and the editors must be congratulated on bringing this project to completion.
