The era of humanist jurisprudence had the reconstruction of the Justinian law books in their original form as its goal. Alciat, the founder of humanist jurisprudence, shone with his text-critical works: Andreas (Alciatus) prisco reddit sua law nitori. The comparison of text variants also grew in importance. The first great legal scholar with a text-critical edition of the Corpus iuris civilis was the German jurist Gregor Haloander (1501-1531), who edited his digest edition in the Nuremberg in 1529 (see Vico-6). Until the edition of the Codex Florentinus in 1553 Alciat’s Corpus-iuris-civilis edition printed by Hervagius in Basel played a significant role. In particular the Graeca Modestiniana, which were published here for the first time, aroused the then specialist world, especially as a breach of trust had clearly led to a premature publishing of these passages from the Codex Florentinus. How Alciat came by these Graeca has remained a mystery to the present day. The Basel 1541 digest edition constitutes the state of the art of text-critical research prior to the Editio Taurelliana of 1553. The work is based on the research outside or close to the Codex Florentinus and gives us a fascinating insight into the work of the jurists of that age. An important component in the reconstruction of the edition history of the Justinian law books.
