Roman Statutes: Renewing Roman Law

Preparation for print and online publication of translations and annotation of all surviving Greek and Latin inscribed legislation from classical Rome. (36 months)

The project will produce the first comprehensive, accurate, scholarly, and freely-available edition of all surviving inscribed legislation from classical Rome. The corpus of Roman laws has been continually enriched through new archaeological work, and new editions have been made as the corpus has expanded. The last decades have witnessed a remarkable sequence of discoveries. The current project will nearly double the amount of Latin and Greek text contained in the last major work in the field, produced by an international team of 23 scholars between 1983 and 1996. Mobilizing the resources of the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents at Oxford University, we plan to produce a new print edition and open-access repository of this important historic material, with introductions, translation, and commentary designed to appeal to students and experts alike. It will amount to a revolution in the fields of Roman history and Roman law, and all areas of endeavor wherein these matter.
