Translated by Samuel P. Scott

( Cincinnati, 1932 )




   Often criticized, Samuel P. Scott’s quite old translation does not always meet the standards of a scientific publication. Yet we found it useful to make the full text available on the Web after slightly amending the original form so that you can make your own opinion. This translation was made from : D. Godefroy, Corpus juris civilis, Pandectis ad Florentinum archetypum expressis, Institutionibus.., Amsterdam, 1663 ; A. Kriegel & E. Osenbrüggen, Corpus iuris ciuilis, Leipzig, 1872.
