This work asks the question: What did Christianity
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
way in antiquity?
This little book is some form of answer. It is a
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 w ith law and legal
thought. It is part history, part philosophy, and more
than anything else an intorduction to issues of law and
legal adjudication in t he Patristic and Byzantine eras.John McGuckin, John Mcguckin
