He also examines how the Code engaged the legal conflict between Christianity and paganism. Published in 438 C.E., the Theodosian Code was the official compilation of laws enacted since Constantine. It was superseded in 528 C.E. by the Code of Justinian. Reprinted from the series Studies in History, Economics and Public Law edited by the Political Science Faculty of Columbia University.
