Roman law has a long history, but the work that has had the most lasting influence in the West is the Emperor Justinian's Corpus Juris Civilis from the early 6th century. Western Europe "rediscovered" his codification in the 11th century. What became the standard printed edition came out in 1583, remaining so until the 19th century.
