Institutes

Institutes
   Handbook of civil law for law students; part of the Corpus Juris Civilis (q.v.), with the authority of law. It was prepared by Tribonian (q.v.) and two other jurists, Theophilos and Dorotheos, while they were working on the Digest (q.v.). Essentially, it updated the Commentaries of Gaius, the great second-century jurist, in a way that made it a primer for the remainder of the Corpus Juris Civilis. The Institutes and the Digest were published in 533, necessitating a revision of the 529 Codex Justinianus, which was completed in 534.
