TROJE, Hans Erich. Regarding Critique and Some Text Editions in Humanistic Jurisprudence. Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2009, n.31, pp. 259-275. ISSN 0716-5455. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-54552009000100010.
Between 1522 and 1526 a glossed edition of the Corpus iuris civilis, under the care of Louis Blaubloom, an erudite from Gante settled in Paris since 1520 appeared at the editorial house of Claude Chevallon, Paris. Its prefatory letter, that he himself placed in front of Digestum vetus of 1523, has an unusual amount of accurate facts regarding the patterns used to elaborate the text, as well as further auxiliary methods used, out of which only one was available after the printing process began. The author analyses and comments this prefatory letter that, given the accuracy and honesty of the information, outstands from the group of texts that it can be compared with, within the frame of the editorial work of Blaubloom and in relationship with the history of humanist editions of Pandects. Also, this article investigates the origin of the Graeca Modestini in the non-glossed edition of Digesto de Basilea, 1541 (Hervagius).
