Tuori, Kaius: Ancient Roman Lawyers and Modern Legal Ideals
Studien on the impact of contemporary concerns in the interpretation of ancient Roman legal history
In order to grasp the impact of contempory concerns, the accounts of the ancient Romans are compared with the writings of legal historians from the 16th century to the present. The observation of changes in the historical interpretations is a good indicator of how, for example, the interpretations on the scientific nature of law made from the 16th century to 19th century reflect the ideals of their time. The birth of modern law and modern historiography during the 19th century changed the historical image of Roman law dramatically. The practical Roman law which was implemented by the contemporaries was changed into the historical Roman law with an aesthetical value as a classical model. The end of the practical use of Roman law released the history of Roman law to legal history itself, but the narratives made to justify its use still continue.
