A History of Italian Law, Volume 2
This work in two volumes presents a comprehensive analysis of the history of Italian law, which in a sense has become the law of Europe because of the reception of Roman law in varying degrees in all parts of Western Europe. The Roman Empire was a high tide in the cultural advancement of Western Europe. This influence can still be found in various codes in Europe. Thus, the history of the laws and customs of Italy involving the Holy Roman Empire and the feudal system with which it is associated, the Civil Law, the Church and Canon Law, and the law of merchants also reflects the development of European legal ideas and institutions. Fascinating reading for those interested in comparative law.

CONCLUSION FROM all I have written a very useful theorem may be deduced, little though it conforms to custom, that common lawgiver of the nations. It is this : In order that punishment should never be an act of violence committed by one or many against a private citizen, it is essential that it be public, speedy, and necessary, as little as the circumstances will allow, proportionate to the crime, and established by law.
