The Annotated Justinian Code

The Annotated Justinian Code website, put together by Tim Kearley, Director of the George W. Hopper Law Library at the University of Wyoming, contains PDFs of Justice Fred Blume’s copiously annotated (4,500+ pages) English translation of Justinian’s Code—the only English translation made from the Latin version regarded as most authoritative. (Scott’s heavily criticized translation was made from another Latin version.)

The site also contains: Blume’s scanned translation of the Novels; his 100+ page “The Code of Justinian, and it’s Value”—an address he delivered part of to the Riccobono Society in 1938 but which has never been published; and a few other Blume-related items.
