Alciat founded humanistic jurisprudence, which unleashed a new spirit in jurisprudence based on profound knowledge of classic languages and ancient culture. Alciat applied his legal and philological knowledge to the interpretation of the corpus iuris civilis and placed the whole of legal science on a new foundation. The superceding of scholastic legal science and the transition to modern jurisprudence are inseparably bound with Alciat`s name. The new method (mos gallicus) led to the reforming of legal faculties throughout almost the whole of Europe. He himself had his opera omnia published by Isingrin in Basel (1547). It was last printed, now including the last books of the Parerga, in 1557-58. In this edition the Emblemata with the whole illustrations are edited.
