The medieval Glossators divided it into three sections, or Volumina. (These divisions are based on the order in which the sections of the Digest were recovered.) The Digestum Vetus corresponds to Book 1 to Book 24, Title 2. Along with the Institutes, Code and Novels, the Digest is one of the writings known collectively as the Corpus Juris Civilis. Its subsequent influence on European jurisprudence is difficult to overestimate. The most important editor of the medieval and early-modern era, Accursius arranged the vast body of notes and comments on the Institutes, Code and Diges.
