Book Description

Ancient legal theory focused on equity, justice, and humanity in their decision-making. An examination of what constituted legality and the function of law in ancient societies, from Hammurabi and the Pharaohs to Justinian and the Talmud, this book is available as a free PDF download. This volume investigates how people in the past used law to create stable societies by investigating and comparing the legal thinking and legal codes of ancient societies such as Mesopotamia, Greece, India, Egypt, the Roman Republic, the Roman Empire, and of the ancient Rabbis. It also compares and contrasts the legal thinking and legal codes of modern nations such as the United States. This volume begins with an examination of the Code of Hammurabi and continues with discussions of the law of the pharaohs, the codes of the ancient rabbis, and the code of the Roman Emperor Justinian. No other ebook makes an effort to investigate such a wide variety of legal systems and ways of thinking about law that existed in the ancient world. This one does so by concentrating on the central ideas of justice, humanity, and equity; the status of slaves and women; and the idea of criminality, as well as of war and peace.


According to the author, “Ancient Legal Thought could be particularly beneficial for topic-specific study and instruction on issues like as the position of women; the legitimacy of slavery; war; and the consequences of inequality as expressed in law and legal writing.” — G. S. Gessert; Choice
