The notion and understanding of law penetrated society in Ancient Rome to a degree unparalleled in modern times. Sources of Roman Law addresses four central questions: Who made the law? Where did a Roman go to discover what the law was? How the law survived to be known to us today? And what procedures were there for putting the law into effect? O. F. Robinson describes the origins of law and their relative weight in the light of developing Roman history. She has written an invaluable narrative of how the sources have survived to inform the legal system today.
