THEODOSIANI LIBRI XVI
CUM CONSTITUTIONIBUS SIRMONDIANIS
Theodosian Code was composed between AD 429 and 438. In 429 the Emperor
Theodosius ordered for the nine men commission to compose all imperial
constitutions since the time of Constantine. Together with the Codex
Hermogenianus and Codex Gregorianus this collection
had to be an actual law book and a model for the education of jurists.
The collection of the using constitutions had to be completed with
answers (responsa) and juridical treatises. Thus it would
put together leges and ius vetus. Nothing is known
about the result of this commission's work. The new commission of
sixteen men with the quaestor of sacred palace Antiochus was made
in 435. After two years’ working the commission made sixteen
books of laws. Not all of them were left to us in the complete volume.
Most part of the first six books is lost.
