Ancora sulla cronologia delle opere di Giulio Paolo (dopo il 211 d.C. e opere di collocazione incerta)
In: Bullettino dell'Istituto di Diritto Romano "Vittorio Scialoja": 12, 2022
This essay focuses on the dating of the works of Julius Paulus which have presumably been composed after 211 A.D., as well as on the examination of those works for which it has not been possible to determine the interval of composition, but which contain nevertheless chronologically relevant elements. Thus, it has been assumed that the libri de officio proconsulis must have been composed after the death of Septimius Severus, as well as the libri Tuaestionum. On the other hand, the libri ad legem Iuliam can be traced to the Principate of Caracalla, while merely the libri de censibus can be dated to the Principate of Elagabalus. The libri responsorum, then, probably got started under Septimius Severus and Caracalla, certainly under Elagabalus, and then completed during the Principate of Alexander Severus. Finally, despite the presence of a fair number of chronologically relevant clues, it has not been possible to determine the interval of composition of the libri de fideicommissis, of the libri ad legem Iuliam et Papiam and of the libri ad Plautium.
