Product Description

The first printing in England of an important work on the study of Law by Francois Douaren (1509-1550) Jurist and Professor of Law at the University of Bourges. He was one of the leading representatives of the legal humanist school of thought within the science of Roman Law on the European Continent. The 16th Century French Law Professors including Douaren, applied the philological methods of the Italian Humanists to legal texts with an aim of arriving at a more accurate understanding of the texts of the Roman Corpus Juris Civilis. The second part by Pierre Rebuffi has a separate sub title. STC 7262
