Philosophy and Power in the Graeco-Roman World

Fergus Millar

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Ulpian and his contribution to juristic writing under the Severan emperors. Ulpian is immediately recognizable from his writings as an intellectual, an unmistakable academic who researches and compares texts, pursues minutiae, analyses concepts, and develops explanations. Like many of his fellow-jurists, he also had a political career; indeed, he apparently exercised great power as praetorian prefect, and died as a result, killed in a mutiny of the praetorian guard.

Keywords:   Ulpian, juristic writers, Roman legal scholarship, jurists
