This is an interdisciplinary, edited collection on social science methodologies for approaching Roman legal sources. Roman law as a field of study is rapidly evolving to reflect new perspectives and approaches in research. Scholars who work on the subject are increasingly being asked to conduct research in an interdisciplinary manner whereby Roman law is not merely seen as a set of abstract concepts devoid of any background, but as a body of law which operated in a specific social, economic and cultural context. This 'context-based' approach to the study of Roman law is an exciting new field which legal historians must address. This book furthers the ongoing debate about law and society in the Roman world. It furthers the current debate on the interface between legal history and ancient history. It brings together a distinguished group of scholars who provide different perspectives. It focuses on larger emerging themes such as the interaction between legal history practice, Roman legal thought, and law and economics.
