Some Digest Texts of Ulpian Attributed to Paul

Show Summary Details


This chapter is concerned with texts attributed in the Digest to Paul but which seem really to be texts of Ulpian. The reason for thinking that these texts are wrongly inscribed is mainly the difference in style between the two writers, but also turns in part on the way in which Digest titles were constructed. Moreover, differences of style are not ultimately distinct from differences in legal outlook.
