“Plenitudo potestatis nihil aliud est quam violentia.” (The fullness of power is nothing more than violence).

― Andrea Alciati

 

An impressive 16th-century edition of Andrea Alciati’s complete works. Best known for his famed book of Emblemata which brought him substantial recognition, he also published important commentary on Justinian’s ‘Codex’. ‘Codex’, part of ‘Corpus Juris Civilis’, was the Justinian’s attempt at organizing the laws in a systematic manner. Recognizing that the law system needed to be fixed, ‘Codex’ covers ecclesiastical law, criminal and civil law, the way laws were written and put into effect, duties of government officials, and proper administrative regulations.

 

This volume from the 1557 edition includes Alciati’s commentary on Justinian law.
