Chapter Summary

This section of this book The Corpus Iuris Civilis in the Middle Ages presents the legal texts and the manuscript work that prepared the way for Mommsen’s and Krüger’s editions of Justinian’s Institutes, Code, and Digest. The effort to apply the Lachmann method to Corpus Iuris Civilis was led by Theodor Mommsen, who set the example in his own edition of the Digest.
