Example text

35 Nonetheless, if we analyse fourth- to sixth-century Roman legal institutions from the perspective of law as social practice (and I accept that this term needs considerable unpacking too), we are presented with a very different picture of legal institutions and institutionalisation. This picture would foreground (1) the socially constructed nature of Roman legal institutions; (2) the importance of “local” legal cultures and institutional practices and (3) the “situated” behaviour of individual actors.

One could usefully contrast Carocci and Collavini’s suggestion that seigneuries extracting revenues from local peasantries living under a lord’s direct control should be treated as “small polities”, in terms no different from those usually reserved for the state – with Vivien Prigent’s exploration of the efforts invested in the Byzantine Empire to ensure “the greatest possible distancing between the one responsible for and the one benefiting from the Comparing Medieval Institutions 11 levy” – to channel extracted revenues, in monetised form, to the centre before being redistributed.

For example, since at least the early nineteenth century, professional legal historians have painstakingly “identified,” “reconstructed” and classified “Roman” legal institutions, including formal patterns of academic juristic thought – institutions which many legal historians now take to be “natural” and self-evident (again, as implied in the opening quotation above). Whereas comparable attempts to “identify” and “reconstruct” a field of early Islamic legal institutions seems, in general, to be strikingly recent.
