Droit imperial et traditions locales dans l'Egypte romaine, Hardback Book

Droit imperial et traditions locales dans l'Egypte romaine Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series


In the first centuries after the Roman occupation of Egypt the local laws and traditions of the Greek-speaking population were brought face to face with the demands and structures of the legal system of the Empire.

The articles in this volume examine how the two interacted, and are based upon extensive research into the Greek papyri.

The opening studies show how the Greek elite was accommodated by the conquerors and investigate the persistence of a number of local practices.

In the second part, which centres upon the figure of the noted jurist Ulpian, Professor Meleze-Modrzejewski looks at the impact of the Roman Empire, while the final articles attempt to explain how the legal traditions of the Hellenised East survived the general extension of Roman citizenship by Caracalla in 212 AD. Durant les premiers siecles qui ont suivi l'occupation romaine de l'Egypte, les lois et les traditions locales de la population hellenophone furent confrontes aux exigences et aux structures du systeme legal de l'empire.

Les articles contenus dans ce volume en examinent l'internaction et sont bases de faAon extensive sur le temoinage des papyrus grecs.

Les premiers etudes montrent comment les conquerants furent conciliants vis-A -vis de l'elite grecque et examinent la persistance d'un certain nombre de pratiques provinciales.

Dans la deuxieme partie, qui est centree sur l'illustre juriste Ulpien, le professeur Meleze-Modrzejewski jette un regard sur l'impact de l'empire romain.

Les dernieres etudes tentent d'expliquer de quelle faAon les traditions juridiques de l'Orient hellenise ont sevecu A l'extension generale de la citoyennete romaine par Caracalla en 212 de notre ere.
