A volume in the Middle Ages Series

"Places the Lombard laws in their historical context, showing the importance of barbarian codes, the development of the Lombard policy and society in the early Middle Ages, and the use of laws as sources for these topics. . . . The translation is excellent."—Choice
Here presented for the first time in English are the law codes of the Lombard kings who ruled Italy from the sixth to the eighth centuries. The documents afford unparalleled insight into the structure and values of Germanic society.
