A new and thought-provoking study of marriage and the law in late antiquity, looking particularly at the new legislation enacted by the emperor Constantine (reigned AD 307-337). Constantine was famously the first Christian emperor - did his laws reflect Christian ideals, or pagan practice? This book is intended for scholars and students of late antiquity and the Roman Empire; especially historians interested in the position of women and/or early Christianity.
