Institutes

(3 syl.). Elementary law treatises, as the Institutes of Gaius and those of Florentius, Callistratus, Paulus, Ulpian, and Marcian. The Institutes of Justinian were compiled by Antoninus Pius, and for the most part are mere rechauffees of the preceding ones, giving the words and opinions of the respective authors.
