The Creation of the Ius Commune

Edinburgh University Press

Succession was one of the most heavily represented themes in later medieval and early-modern juristic discussion of fiefs. In this, ius commune feudorum merely reflected the wider trends of practical and academic jurisprudence. This chapter explores the way in which the ius commune feudorum became recognised and discussed as a significant category of its own, leading the glossators to develop the concept of the natura feudi.

Keywords:   academic jurisprudence, glossators, natura feudi
