Projet Volterra (Roman law Project) II, phase 2: Law and the end of Empire
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 second phase of the project, entitled 'Law and the End of Empire' (Volterra II), started in September 2005. This comprises two five-year research projects funded by the Arts and Humanities Reseach Council (2005-2010, 2011-2015), and it continues to be based at UCL History. It carries on chronologically from where Volterra I left off. Based on a thorough analysis of the surviving texts and their transmission, the aim of this phase of the project is to produce a history, with supporting database and on-line resources, of the law (Roman, Germanic or ‘barbarian’, and ecclesiastical) in all its aspects in continental Europe between the end of the Roman Empire in the west and the Carolingian period.
