Projet Volterra (Roman Law Project) I: Law and Empire AD193-455
The Projet Volterra was established in honour of the memory of the distinguished Roman lawyer Edoardo Volterra (1904-1984), whose widow left his substantial and rich collection of Roman law books to the École Française de Rome. A catalogue of the older items, with reminiscences by relatives and colleagues, has now been published by Douglas Osler as vol. 3 in the series Bibliographica Iuridica (Frankfurt-am-Main, 2006). The general aims of the Projet Volterra are to promote the study of Roman law in its full social, political and legal context. The first phase of this project in Britain (Volterra I) ran from 1995 to 2004, based in the UCL History Department, being initially funded by the British Academy and then by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Entitled 'Law and Empire AD193-455', it focused on later Roman imperial legal pronouncements and its primary output was an on-line searchable database of all imperial pronouncements in Latin from the late second to mid-fifth centuries. Although this phase is now finished, its product is a 'living database' that continues to be up-dated and maintained courtesy of periodic funding from the British Academy, which adopted the Projet Volterra in 2005 as one of its long term research projects. The dates given for the project here in IRIS delineate my involvement.
