ANAMED Library Talks continue in August. The talk is entitled “A Sourcebook on Byzantine Law. Illustrating Byzantine Law through the Sources”. This month’s guests are Daphne Penna and Zachary Chitwood. This is the first book in English providing a wide range of Byzantine legal sources. In six chapters, this book explains and illustrates Byzantine law through a selection of fundamental Byzantine legal sources, beginning with the sources before the time of Justinian, and extending up to AD 1453. For all sources English translations are provided next to the original Greek (and Latin) text. In some cases, tables or other features are included that help further elucidate the source and illustrate its nature. The volume offers a clear yet detailed primer to Byzantine law, its sources, and its significance. Zachary Chitwood will be the moderator. The talk will be in English and will take place online.
