Women and the Law in the Roman Empire : A Sourcebook on Marriage, Divorce and Widowhood Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Sourcebooks for the Ancient World series

Description

It is widely recognized that Roman law is an important source of information about women in the Roman world, and can present a more rounded and accurate picture than literary sources.

This sourcebook fully exploits the rich legal material of the imperial period - from Augustus (31 BCE - 14 CE) to the end of the western Roman Empire (476 CE), incorporating both pagan and Christian eras, and explaining the rights women held under Roman law, the restrictions to which they were subject, and legal regulations on marriage, divorce and widowhood.
