The Emperor of Law. The Emergence of Roman Imperial Adjudication.
Oxford University Press, 2016. 498p. Hardback. Series: Oxford Studies in Roman Society & Law. this is an impressive and important work ... There is much to praise here ... This is a work that asks more questions than it answers, but that is no bad thing. It challenges the reader, with great subtlety, to rethink the role of the emperor, to look again at what we think we know, and to recognise the artificial remembering of later Roman historiography. We accept Roman imperial adjudication because the Romans did, and if Tuori's argument holds, that is the most important thing about it.
