Abstract

The 1937-1938 course prof. Betti held in Germany is a challenging and demanding series of lectures: all in German, it consistently reflects the historical and constitutional approach of the ‘Antike Rechtgeschichte’ à la mode at the time. The first edition of this otherwise unpublished work by Istituto Betti confirms and highlights the relevance of the historical time in the Author’s perspective, despite the well-known contrary bias. The part of the course (its first nineteen chapters) devoted to the pre-republican and the republican period  extends the reader’s (at the time of the course the audience’s) perspective to the social and economic framework. The teaching method limits to the essential the reading and the interpretation of the original Latin sources, which were left to the practice hours connected to the lectures: this choice allows a smooth flow of the discourse and an easy reading. Prof. Betti’s course offers a sharp and fine display of history of Roman Law, also for the current methodological approach.
