do to build a civilization? In the present age, law
has been used energetically to micro-manage human
societies, values, and aspirations. But did l aw work that

book on law and legal thought as it emerged in its
formative ages of the Christian past; it asks what the
ancient writers and theorists did with law and legal
thought. It is part history, part philosophy, and more
than anything else an introduction to issues of law and
legal adjudication in the Patristic and Byzantine eras.
