Presentation: Classical literature in Byzantine legal sources

Abstract: Did the emperor, the law professor and the
judge in Byzantium use the Classics and if so,
how and why? This paper focuses on testimonies
of ‘classicising learning’ and references to
Classical literature in Byzantine legislation and
jurisprudence, as well as in Byzantine legal
sources reflecting classroom teaching.
