A comparison between ancient, late antique (mostly unknown and so far unedited) and medieval Latin manuscripts of juridical contents allows us to highlight the continuity between the Late Antiquity and the Roman Middle Ages. Titles, rubricae, numbers, paratextual elements in medieval legal manuscripts of Roman origin show significant similarities with the older evidence; in my opinion, this is due to the type of text (that ‘imposes’ a mise en page with a very stable and rich paratext) and to a trend in ‘conservatism’ in the mise en page, likely because of the presence in medieval Rome of many late antique legal models/antigraphs.

Abstract

A comparison between ancient, late antique (mostly unknown and so far unedited) and medieval Latin manuscripts of juridical contents allows us to highlight the continuity between the Late Antiquity and the Roman Middle Ages. Titles, rubricae, numbers, paratextual elements in medieval legal manuscripts of Roman origin show significant similarities with the older evidence; in my opinion, this is due to the type of text (that ‘imposes’ a mise en page with a very stable and rich paratext) and to a trend in ‘conservatism’ in the mise en page, likely because of the presence in medieval Rome of many late antique legal models/antigraphs.
