Law and Society in Byzantium by Angeliki E. Laiou

Book Description

Although the Byzantines had a formal legal system, deriving from Justinian's codification, was this a society meant to be governed by law? What were the spheres - political, economic and private - that the laws and the lawgivers sought to regulate? What was the connection between law and religion - was the Emperor or God the source of law? What was the interplay between human justice and divine justice? The essays in this volume explore these and other questions by looking at the intent of the legislators; societal attitudes toward the law; and the relationships among law, religion, literature and art.
