A New Outline of the Roman Civil Trial

Ernest Metzger


Roman litigation has long been a difficult subject for study, hampered by a lack of information concerning the practical operation of the civil courts. Using newly discovered evidence, this book presents a new interpretation of how civil trials in Classical Rome were commenced and brought to judgement. The new evidence adds to our knowledge of Roman courts, and the book uses this evidence to create an original contribution to the literature on Roman Civil procedure.

Keywords: Roman litigation, civil courts, civil trials, Classical Rome, Roman courts, Roman civil procedure
