Linking Fields, Approaches, and Methods in Byzantine Legal Studies
In this paper I will be presenting the means and methodology that the researcher of Byzantine law has at their disposal to investigate their research subject. I aim through this presentation to address the question as to whether the study of Byzantine law comes under the umbrella of the humanities, as does history, or the social sciences, such as Law. Furthermore, the relevance that the study of Byzantine law has today will be discussed here. That is to say, if its relevance is exhausted through the reconstitution of a legal culture, or if in itself it may be of use as a science to help resolve contemporary legal issues.
