The Event

As part of Global Goals Week, the Skoll Foundation and the United Nations Foundation are pleased to present We the Future: Accelerating Sustainable Development Solutions on September 21, 2017 at TED Theater in New York.
The Sustainable Development Goals, created in partnership with individuals around the world and adopted by world leaders at the United Nations, present a bold vision for the future: a world without poverty or hunger, in which all people have access to healthcare, education and economic opportunity, and where thriving ecosystems are protected. The 17 goals are integrated and interdependent, spanning economic, social, and environmental imperatives.
Incremental change will not manifest this new world by 2030. Such a shift requires deep, systemic change. As global leaders gather for the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly in September, this is the moment to come together to share models that are transforming the way we approach the goals and equipping local and global leaders across sectors to accelerate achievement of the SDGs.

Together with innovators from around the globe, we will showcase and discuss bold models of systemic change that have been proven and applied on a local, regional, and global scale. A curated audience of social entrepreneurs, corporate pioneers, government innovators, artistic geniuses, and others will explore how we can learn from, strengthen, and scale the approaches that are working to create a world of sustainable peace and prosperity.

gaius meaning roman

December 1, 2020 by 0

It is probably in allusion to the familiarity of the Roman youth with the writings of Gaius that Justinian repeatedly calls him (e. g. Inst. 23; Cic. We find it, for instance, fixing the rate of interest4 ; but such an ordinance technically assumed the form merely of advice to the judicial magistrates as to the rates which they should recognize in their edicts. Some of the provisions which they contain are quite prehistoric and could never have been valid at any period of the history of the Republic. The defendant has no voice in the selection of the Court. The expression is found in Justinian (Cod. Gaius attributes to these decrees ‘the binding force of law’; and it does not seem that the early doubts as to whether the Senate could pass ordinances immediately binding on the community1 survived the beginning of the Principate. By an ‘extraordinary magistracy’ is meant a magistracy formed by an accumulation of functions, each of which is usually exercised by a particular magistrate. From the point of view of the general history of the civil and criminal law in a State it is not of much importance to determine the particular mode in which a legislative assembly is constituted, or the precise manner in which a sovereign (whether nominal or real) is invested with his authority. It was of no great content, since it was concerned exclusively with the jurisdiction over the market, and the control of public sites—a jurisdiction and control which were possessed by these magistrates. [2 ]These passages in inverted commas are taken from Mr Poste’s preface to the third edition of his work. This was the procedure by Formula, which was to furnish the prototype for the method adopted by the Praetor Urbanus, and to replace the older procedure by Legis Actio in most of the Roman courts of law. 1. The Edictum of the Praetor1 , in the sense in which this word is commonly used, is really a colloquial expression for the Album, or great notice-board exhibited by the Praetor, which contained other elements besides the Edicta in their true and proper sense. p. 110, note 5, [4 ]Not merely to the Judex privatus, but to the Judex extra ordinem datus, and even to the magistrate who was judging. But a corporate activity far greater than this has been suspected for earlier times. But it contained as well the Formulae which were the creation of him and his predecessors—the Formulae which were the product of what was known as ‘Magistrate’s Law’ (Jus Honorarium); and each of these Formulae was no doubt preceded, at least eventually, by the Edictum or ruling in law, which might have grown out of the Formula, but finally served as its basis and justification. At first this assembly could only pass ordinances binding on the members of the Plebs themselves. The Proconsulare Imperium was technically valid only outside the limits of Italy; but, as it was absolutely necessary that the Princeps should possess Imperium within Rome, he was specially exempted from losing his Imperium by his presence within the city. About a tenth of the whole is lost or completely illegible, but part of this may be restored from Justinian’s Institutes, or from other sources; accordingly, of the whole Institutions about one-thirteenth is wanting, one half of which belongs to the Fourth Book.’, ‘From the style of the handwriting the MS. is judged to be older than Justinian or the sixth century after Christ; but probably did not precede that monarch by a long interval.’, ‘In a year after Niebuhr’s discovery the whole text of Gaius had been copied out by Goeschen and Hollweg, who had been sent to Verona for that purpose by the Prussian Royal Academy of Sciences, and in 1820 the first edition was published. The King, too, must have given the ruling in law which determined what form of action should be employed2 . [2 ]This seems shown by the story told by Pomponius in Dig. The first of these who taught the science publicly is said to have been Tiberius Coruncanius1 (circa 280 b. c.), who was also the first plebeian Pontifex Maximus. The assembly may have been as scantily attended when it performed the formal acts vested in it when it met as the Comitia Calata6 . 25; Liv. [3 ]Such a delegate might be given by the consuls when exercising extraordinary jurisdiction (Gell. proem. criminal and constitutional. Roman jurist whose chief work, the Institutes, is a major source of information on Roman … or Institutes of Roman Law by Gaius, with a Translation and Commentary by the late Edward The third class of occasions on which the State intervenes to correct a wrong or to chasten an individual, is that governed by the rules of Administrative Law2 . It seems to be a decree of the Senate which is intended to be submitted to the People for their formal assent. The marriage recognized was that known as the result of usus—a contract, that is, which was concluded by consent and strengthened by prescription4 . But it is very questionable whether the Tables went so far as to specify the Forms of Action; the actual words and gestures, that is, which had to be employed in any given case. 19 ‘Primus edictum quod varie inconditeque a praetoribus promebatur in ordinem composuit.’ Eutrop. There is indirect evidence that all Private Land (Ager Privatus) was at one time owned by the Gentes, not by families or individuals2 , and the view that the primitive Roman Senate was in some way representative of the Gentes is in accordance with the belief of Roman antiquity3 . [2 ][Cic.] 2. But these historical questions do to some extent underlie subjects which are treated by Gaius; and, as it was not found convenient to deal with them at any great length in the commentary, a place had to be found for them in this introduction. There was no sphere of human interest outside their control; their power of utterance was limited only by a respect for religious law7 . His later contemporary, Acilius, seems also to have been a legal commentator3 . The former (Praetor qui inter cives jus dicit) was known by the colloquial name of Praetor Urbanus; the latter (Praetor qui inter peregrinos jus dicit) was known by the similarly abbreviated title of Praetor Peregrinus. Local customs tend to die hard, and it was never in the spirit of the Roman Empire to suppress them. — from Etruscan Mamerce. Since the Plebs came gradually to constitute the majority of voters in the assemblies of the people, these petitions must as time went on have been almost invariably confirmed. It contained instructions either on administrative or on judicial matters. 33. 1. It is not improbable that the superior ‘naturalness’ of the Jus Gentium to the Jus Civile had begun to appeal to the Romans long before they had begun to be affected by Greek philosophic thought; for we know the effect which was produced on the minds of the Greeks themselves by their early contact with foreign civilizations. Marcus Aurelius was probably named, 2. iii 2. He reduced the edict to a fixed and definite system4 ; and from this time onward the Edictum Perpetuum was, in its essential features, unalterable. An important aspect of the Public Law of the Twelve Tables is the guarantee of the right of free association, provided that it have no illegal intent. 38. Latin Baby Names Meaning: In Latin Baby Names the meaning of the name Gaius … 3 (‘The Theory of the Law of Nature’). xii 13. 1. The Infantry. 29. It may even be questioned whether the Edict of Caracalla, which is believed to have extended Roman citizenship to all the free inhabitants of that portion of the world that was ruled by Rome, between the years 212 and 217 a d., really eliminated all the local varieties of customary law. He thinks that the Twelve Tables, as a code, originated with Sextus Aelius Paetus, consul in 198 b. c., whom tradition regards as their earliest commentator, although he admits that there may have been successive partial compilations before this date. [3 ]Ulpian in Dig. [1 ]This was done by the fiction of In integrum restitutio. “Epidemic” vs. “Pandemic” vs. “Endemic”: What Do These Terms Mean? 1. On sixty pages, or about a fourth of the whole, the codex is doubly palimpsest, i.e. . Amongst subjects included in this sketch, which have little direct bearing on the history of Roman Law, I may mention the descriptions of the structure of the different Comitia at Rome and the account of the manner in which the powers of the Princeps were conferred. See Mommsen, Staatsr. 95-124. He was bound by the decision5 ; but naturally only on the assumption that the facts as stated in the petition which elicited the Rescript were the facts as exhibited in the course of the trial6 It may have been understood that the opinion of only one patented counsellor was to be sought in any single case; for in the early Principate there seems to have been no provision determining the conduct of a Judex when the opinions of his advisers differed. The magistrate chiefly concerned with the interpretation of private law was the Praetor. vii. 23); 120,000 asses (Plin. [7 ]Hence the saving clause in enactments, ‘Si quid sacri sancti est quod non jure sit rogatum, ejus hac lege nihil rogatur’ (Probus). This portion of the edict spoke about the financial relations of the states of the province to the Roman government and to its agents, and stated the rules which regulated the relations of the tax-gatherers (Publicani) to the tax-payers. 2. i. 30; Gell. Later, toward the end of his third missionary journey, when Paul wrote his Epistle to the Romans, he was staying in Gaius’s home, and Gaius included his greetings to the church in Rome (Romans 16:23). f. R. G. vi (1867), p. 339 foll. It was for this reason that the military unit (the centuria) was the voting unit. Akin to this right was that of creating Patricians, which had been conferred by law on Caesar and Augustus, had been exercised by Claudius and Vespasian as censors, and finally became a right inherent in the Principate itself. in Dig. [8 ]For a detailed description of this literature see Roby, Introduction to the Study of Justinian’s Digest, pp. Yet, late as the Gens is when considered in reference to the prehistoric development of the Latin race, it perhaps possessed, before the very dawn of history, a unity and power of its own, of which but pale reflections survive in the historical period. He could of course vary the decisions of his own delegates in matters of extraordinary jurisdiction. It may have been their ruling, but it was by no means their sole interest; and sometimes the fruitful experience of a lifetime spent in an active forensic and political career was given to admiring students during the repose which marked the closing years of the statesman’s life3 . The elder unto the well-beloved Gaius — Gaius, or, according to the Latin orthography, Caius, was a common name among the Romans. The response was usually elicited by a party to the suit and presented to the Judex4 . 21. Gaius Julius Caesar is a Dictator of the Roman Republic, Consul of the Roman Republic, Dictatorof theRoman Republic, and Consulof theRoman Republic. In each a President (Quaesitor), who was generally a Praetor, sat with a bench of Judices who pronounced a penalty fixed by the law which had constituted the court. But it may have allowed the Praetor to substitute the one procedure for the other in most spheres of civil jurisdiction; and, where the Praetor still permitted the Legis Actio and the Formula to stand side by side in his Album, it may have given the litigants a choice between the two. Thus the edicts might take cognizance of cases not provided for by the civil law at all, they might replace the mechanism provided by the civil law for attaining a legal end, and they might alter the character of the end itself. 17. It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Gaius is "happy". From Caesar’s provinces the appeal lay to Caesar; from the other provinces it came to the Consuls and, at least if it was concerned with a criminal matter, was by them transmitted to the Senate. Source: Poste's Historical Introduction to Gai Institutiones It is probable that such new points were still mentioned in successive edicts; for it is certain that the edict still continued to be issued annually. It may have been a redaction of the elements common to all Provincial Edicts1 . [1 ]Dionys. It was also a sign that the privileges of Romans and Italians were not possessed by provincials; for the conferment of Roman citizenship, or even of Latin rights, necessarily carried with it the use of the forms of Roman Private Law2 . We do indeed find a certain number of statutes which deal with important matters of private law, such as the Lex Aquilia de Damno, the Lex Furia on testaments, the Lex Voconia on inheritances; and it is also true that certain important changes in civil procedure were sanctioned by the people, the most far-reaching of these changes being perhaps that effected by the Lex Aebutia, which helped to replace the Legis Actio by the Formula1 . Religious law (Jus Pontificium) attracted the attention of Capito. Absolute validity was given to the new redaction by a Senatusconsultum introduced by a speech from the Emperor Hadrian, who declared that any new point, not contemplated in the edict, should be decided by analogy with it5 . This name also appears in the New Testament belonging to a bishop of … 4. [3 ]Cic. iii, p 149. [1 ]The scheme was as follows:— p. 287; Bernhöft, Staat und Recht dei Konigszeit, p. 230. There seems to have been little sense that a single controlling force was needed for the guidance of the law of Rome, Italy, and the provinces. In the history of the Acts and in the epistles we meet with five persons of this name. 8. It is possibly derived from Latin gaudere "to rejoice", though it may be of unknown Etruscan origin. [6 ]Cic. 8. There must have been much of it in Labeo’s commentary on the Twelve Tables; and Pomponius wrote a Handbook (Enchiridion), which contained a sketch of the legal history of Rome from the earliest times. The form of expression is, it is true, not that of later Roman legislation—complicated, technical, obscure. The distinction between Plebiscita and Leges must have been growing more and more formal and unreal when the Lex Hortensia (287 b. c.) enacted that henceforth Plebiscita should have the force of Leges5 . 30 79). (1) With the Imperium were connected the control of the army and the provinces, the right of declaring war and of making treaties, the power of conferring Roman citizenship or Latin rights, civil and criminal jurisdiction, and the general power of legal interpretation. Progressive legislation was effected elsewhere, in decrees of the Senate and in the imperial constitutions; and the final sign that the creative work of the Praetors was a thing of the past was given when, in the reign of Hadrian (117-138 a.d.), and therefore probably in the lifetime of Gaius, the work which Ofilius had begun3 was perfected by the jurist Salvius Julianus. One of the chief questions which is, or should be, agitating students of Roman Law at the present day, is that of the period at which this transition was effected. See Girard, Manuel, p. 110. [4 ]Nero at the beginning of his reign in 54 a. d professed a desire to restore the original principle (Tac. It is an utterance that expresses the belief that law is essentially a matter of growth, and prepares us for the fact that Rome saw no further scheme of successful codification until nearly a thousand years had passed. The first class contained eighty centuries, the second, third, and fourth, twenty each; the fifth, thirty. On the contrary, it prevented law from being narrowly Roman as effectually as it checked it from recklessly absorbing foreign elements. Like his elder brother, Gaius was educated in the new Greek enlightenment, a movement that emphasized literature, oratory, and philosophy. Interpretation at Rome assumed two forms. The meaning of Caius is "Rejoice". Where they are not a dead letter, they refer only to slight and exceptional contingencies, to the bare outline of the political life of the State and to the faintly defined structure of its hierarchical organization; whereas the Law of the Twelve Tables is a great living force, which pervades the whole of Roman business life. 1. In this claim of the Patricians we therefore have the implication that the ancestors of the Plebeians were not free. Cases of extortion (Repetundarum), in which compensation was demanded for a delict, were first tried before a Praetor and Recuperatores. That he survived to the time of Commodus appears from his having written a treatise on the Sc. The Edictum of the Princeps was, like that of the Praetor in the Republic, technically an interpretation of law, but, like the Praetor, the Princeps could supplement and alter under the guise of interpretation: and his creative power, as exercised by his edictal authority, was very great. § 126, and the Institutions were probably published before his death, for 2. p. 76). ii, p. 196. Effective protection was in any case impossible until a fuller light had been thrown on the question what the rights to be protected actually were. See Krüger, op. That of the wealthy was greater than that of the middle-class, and that of the middle-class far in excess of that of the poor. It is not likely that all of these rules really go back to the epoch of the Kings; but many of them must do so, for they reflect an extremely primitive stage of culture and religious belief. Why Do “Left” And “Right” Mean Liberal And Conservative? As regards the sources of law, even the utterances of the People were for some time elicited. In no respect was this system of education regulated by the State. Scholars know very little of his personal life. 18), but probably with no fixed property qualification. 1 8; Liv. Stately Gaius (pronounced GUY-us) was in the name of many ancient Romans, including Julius Caesar. 241, 242; pro Mur. Ann. [2 ]‘Melior condicio nostra per servos fieri potest, deterior fieri non potest’ (Gaius in Dig. Someone who is awesome enough, to be loved by Australians and Canadians. The existence of the Empire gave Rome the power, possessed in as high a degree by no other State, of dealing with the individual on universal lines, because she was not hampered by the barriers between man and man thrown up by separate national institutions. Such were the rights of securing the election of certain candidates for office by means of a recommendation (Commendatio), and of exercising powers in relation to the Senate superior to those possessed by the other magistrates. Its utility commended its use for cases in which Roman citizens alone were involved. For this purpose the thirty Curiae were in Cicero’s day often represented by but thirty lictors5 . 1; Cic. Name Gaius : Meaning, origin, etymology and all informations about first name Gaius - Roman praenomen, or given name, which is of Etruscan origin, meaning unknown Hence the tradition that the early tribunes were elected in the Comitia Curiata (Liv. When it met for legislative purposes, it was presided over only by the Tribune of the Plebs. The appeal to Nature on behalf of the slave is an index of the part which he was to play in the development of Roman law. [1 ]See Roby, Introduction to the Study of Justinian’s Digest, pp. The two methods of procedure still exist side by side in Cicero’s time; but the formulary procedure is demonstrably the more general of the two. It was difficult to summon and unwieldy in its structure, and its position as a legislative body came to be usurped by the two assemblies of the tribes. The date of the law is unknown, but is not likely to be earlier than 150 b. c. Girard (Manuel, p. 987) finds indications for placing it between 149 and 126 b. c. [2 ]Cic. The Court consisted, in the earlier procedure at Rome which never became wholly extinct during the Republic, of a magistrate representing the State, or of the State itself in the form of the Sovereign Assembly of the People; at a later period, of a select body of Judices with a President (Quaesitor), both Judges and President being created by statute. Throughout Roman law there is a curious persistence of dual forms for the attainment of the same end which may be a survival of two distinct systems of customary law possessed by different peoples, the conquerors and the conquered. [3 ]Gaius, iv. [1 ]This procedure is illustrated by the Lex Bantina (Bruns, Fontes, iii. 2. Nor can we ignore the influence of the Edictum Provinciale, although this came later and at a time when the typical elements in Roman procedure had been fixed. iv. 49. 17). 4 ‘Teneret antiqua munia senatus, consulum tribunalibus Italia et publicae provinciae adsisterent’). The initiation of legislation was, in fact, during the days of Republican stability, in the hands of the Senate; but, apart from the exercise of this authority, which had long had a de facto recognition, but was not recognized by law until the time of Sulla (88 and 81 b. c.)3 , the Senate did not pretend to exercise legislative power during the Republic. The Senate, however, exercised the power of dispensing individuals from the existing laws5 ; and we find it also warning the community that some enactment which had passed the people was, on technical grounds, invalid, and was therefore not binding either on the magistrates or on any member of the State6 . 21. And this is the fact which seems to prove that the Gens marks a late and mature stage in the development of Latin societies; for the patriarchal idea is not one that is readily grasped by the mind of primitive man. 2), puts those which were antiquated in his time (Lex and Plebiscitum) on the same level as those which were living. This is the latest date which is traceable in the life of Gaius. Gnaeus (Cn.) 45 199-200, ‘Quid est enim praeclarius, quam honoribus et rei publicae muneribus perfunctum senem posse suo jure dicere idem, quod apud Ennium dicat ille Pythius Apollo, se esse eum, unde sibi si non populi et reges, at omnes sui cives consilium expetant . [5 ]Gaius, i. These ordinances, in the form in which they have been preserved to us, bear the strongest internal marks of their genuineness. Then, by parlaying his relationships wit… But this knowledge could be obtained only from the King and his Pontiffs. Last year it ranked 1,356th in the U.S. Social Security Administration list of most popular baby boy names. Full citizenship would also be possessed by a considerable class in Latin towns, i. e. by all who, through holding a magistracy, had become Roman citizens. The weight of aristocratic influence may be still more fully realized if we remember that the corps of Roman Knights (centuriae equitum equo publico) formed eighteen centuries in this assembly, and that the mass of citizens whose property fell below the minimum census were grouped in a single century. The criminal law of the Twelve Tables reflects a more primitive stage of thought than its civil ordinances. de Inv ii. The change from the Republic to the Principate introduced no very sudden alterations in the sources of law or the methods of procedure. [3 ]Cic. It was the whole Host or Exercitus expressing its political will. Dixi me de eo genere mea decreta ad edicta urbana accommodaturum.’. 5; Ulpian in Dig. 43, Dionys. Gaius or Caius. It was elicited either as an answer to the consultation (Consultatio) of an official or a judge who hesitated as to his course of procedure, or as a reply to a petition (Libellus, Supplicatio) of one of the parties to a suit. This association of ideas gives us the clue to the fact that the only possible method of distinguishing between the different kinds of Jus is by appealing to Procedure. xiii. Salvius Julianus, besides his redaction of the Edicts1 , produced a work known as Digesta, which perhaps assumed the form of detailed explanations of points of law systematically arranged. Gaius’s Commentary on the Provincial Edict is the only work of the kind known to us. (Oxford: Clarendon [2 ]It is possible that the common elements in the provincial edicts were reduced to a system at this time. The last trace of legislation belongs to the reign of Nerva (96-98 a. d.)2 . The principle of the Appeal to the People (Provocatio) against the sentence of the magistrate was maintained5 ; it was enacted that no law or sentence should be passed to the detriment of an individual (Privilegia ne inroganto)6 ; and it was laid down that no capital sentence could be issued except by ‘the greatest of the Comitia’ (nisi per maximum comitiatum)7 ; that is, by the Assembly of the Centuries, or Exercitus, gathered in the Campus Martius. ‘While the jus civile studied the interests only of citizens, and the jus gentium those of freemen irrespective of nationality, the law of nature had theoretically a wider range and took all mankind within its purview.’ Compare Carlyle, Mediaeval Political Theory in the West, ch. A general conception of what a Provincial Edict should be like, must have grown up; the differences between the edicts being probably those of matter rather than of form—the matter being determined by the local customary law of the subject peoples, which Rome rigidly respected. As a result, his legacy suffered - but was Marius a hero or a villain? xiii. The exclusion of the Plebeians from the magistracy and the priesthood, and the denial to them of the right of Conubium with Patricians, may also point in the direction of a fundamental racial distinction between the two classes. 6. See Mommsen, Staatsr. It may not have been gathered, in the way affirmed by tradition, by the appointment of a commission to inspect the systems of law of different Hellenic states; but it was, at the least, an inevitable result of the prolonged influence of the civilization of Magna Graecia3 , to which Rome had been subject from the days of her infancy—an influence which successively moulded her army, her coinage, her commerce and her literature. 17 ‘Perpetuum conposuit edictum’, [5 ]Cod. In this capacity it was gathered under the presidency of the Pontifex Maximus for the inauguration of the Rex Sacrorum and the Flamines, and for the Detestatio Sacrorum—the renunciation of preexisting religious obligations which was made by a man who passed from his Gens, either by an act of Adrogatio or by transition from the patrician to the plebeian order1 . Every magistrate at Rome was in the habit of notifying to the public the manner in which he meant to exercise his authority, or any change which he comtemplated in existing regulations, by means of a public notice (Edictum). [3 ]This system was first suggested by Pantagathus, who died in 1657. American Presidents Helped These Words Join Our Everyday Vocabulary. Gaius himself mentions that he was a contemporary of Hadrian, Dig. The granting of this privilege did not diminish the activity of the unpatented lawyers2 , although it doubtless diminished their influence; but it gave the response of its possessor as authoritative a character as though it had proceeded from the emperor himself3 . He was not tied down within the limits of a formula. i. Roman jurist and writer, especially on civil law. Even before legislative power had been surrendered by the Comitia, it had begun to pass to the Senate; and down to the third century a.d., such general ordinances as tended to alter the fundamental legal relations of Roman citizens to one another were generally expressed in the form of Senatusconsulta. It often dealt with cases not fully provided for by these courts; and its chief characteristic was that the cognizance (Cognitio), both on the question of law and on the question of fact, was undertaken solely by the magistrate or by a delegate nominated by him (judex extra ordinem datus)3 .
