Report No. c009

Catalogus praescriptionum


Alternative Names



A list of rules of Roman law having to do with designations of time (but not just prescriptions). Not insightful or of high juridical value. Attributed to Rogerius in the Rhodius edition of 1530 (and later), but Savigny and Kantorowicz doubted the attribution. The quality does not match Rogerius’ known works.
