Parneder, a Bavarian jurist and Secretary to King Wilhelm V, was a prolific writer and an authority of great stature, his works were often reprinted. Their comprehensive, synthetic nature did much to organize legal procedure in the Holy Roman Empire. His works on criminal law were definitive until the mid-seventeenth century. First published in 1550-1551, this volume collects his principal works edited by Hunger, a Bavarian state counselor. These are the best editions according to Stobbe's Deutsche Rechtsquellen. Institutiones is an analysis of Justinian's Institutes with comparisons to relevant laws of the Holy Roman Empire and the Kingdom of Ba.
