Dr. Robert Frakes (Dean of the School of Arts & Humanities) recently presented a paper at the International Seminar on Ancient Legal History and Papyrus Research in Memory of Dieter Nörr at the University of Munich.
The seminar was organized by Professor Dr. Johannes Platschek of the Leopold Wenger Institute for Legal History at the University of Munich to honor the memory of the late Professor Nörr (a leading scholar of Roman legal history who died in 2017). Twelve scholars (from universities in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States) presented at the seminar. Frakes’ paper was on the Medieval reception of the mysterious law book known as theCollatio Legum Mosaicarum et Romanarum (“The Collation of the Laws of Moses and of the Romans”) or Lex Dei (“The Law of God”). Regarding the seminar,
Frakes said “Presenting a paper forces you to move ahead with your research agenda and gives you a chance to interact with other scholars in the field (in this case leading scholars from around the world). Professor Nörr played an important role in my scholarly life as my host at the University of Munich when I held an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Research Fellowship, and I appreciate the chance to participate in the seminar held in his memory.”
