The first three books were commissioned by the Justinian I in 530CE. The Code is the restated code of law, the Digest is a compilation of legal opinions and the Institutes is an introductory textbook on the Code. The Novels is a compilation of laws enacted after the publication of the Code. The subsequent influence of these books on European jurisprudence is difficult to overestimate. Haloander was one of the great sixteenth-century authorities on Roman law. His edition of the Novels includes the Peace of Constantine (Edict of Milan), the act that recognized the legitimacy of Christianity in the Roman Empire, edicts of the Holy Roman Emperors Henry VI [reigned 1165-1197], Frederick II [reigned 1194-1250] and a collection of papal legislation falsely attributed to Pope Clement I [reigned 88-99CE], the so-called "False Decretals."
