Abstract

THE LAW OF CITATIONS AND CLASSICAL TEXTS IN THE POST-CLASSICAL PERIOD ALAN WATSON (Glasgow) One implication of the Valentinian Law of Citations which is important for the history of juristic texts in the post-classical period seems to have been ignored 1). C.Th. 1,4,3, Impp. Theod(osius) et Valentin(ianus) AA. aa Senatum Urbis Rom(ae); post alia: Papiniani, Pauli, Gai, Ulpiani atque Modestini scripta universa firmamus ita, ut Gaium quae Paulum, Ulpianum et ceteros comitetur auctoritas lecti- onesque ex omni eius corpore recitentur. Eorum quoque scientiam, quorum tractatus atque sententias praedicti omnes suis operibus miscuerunt, ratam esse censemus, ut Scaevolae, Sabini, Iuliani atque Marcelli omniumque, quos illi celebrarunt, si tamen eorum libri propter antiquitatis incertum codicum collatione firmentur. Ubi autem diversae sententiae proferuntur, potior numerus vincat auctorum, vel, si numerus aequalis sit, eius partis praecedat auctoritas, in qua excellentis ingenii vir Papinianus emineat. qui ut singulos vincit, ita cedit duobus. Notas etiam Pauli atque Ulpiani in Papiniani corpus factas, sicut dudum statutum est, praecipimus infirmari. Ubi autem eorum pares sententiae recitantur, quorum par censetur auctori- tas, quos sequi debeat, eligat moderatio iudicantis. Pauli quoque sententias semper valere praecipimus. Et cetera. dat.
