Show Summary Details


This chapter tries to establish what was the learned law's view of money in the time of the glossators. Before going into the glossators' texts, it is necessary to consider what Justinian's law books contained in this respect, and therefore to turn briefly to the views that the Roman lawyers of antiquity held on the law regarding money and currency.

Keywords: learned law; money; glossators; Justinian's law books; Roman lawyers; currency
