We have been discussing the civil law tradition as though it were homogeneous.
Now we must face the unhappy fact that it is really not that simple. The civil law
tradition is a composite of several distinct elements or subtraditions, with
separate origins and developments in different periods of history. In this and the
next few chapters these subtraditions will be described under the following
headings: Roman civil law, canon law, commercial law, the revolution, and legal
science. A brief ...

Although the origins of the civil law tradition are thought to come from ancient
Roman law, the first modern civil law codes were produced in Prussia in 1794, in
France in 1804, and in Germany in 1896—all after the founding of the American
Republic. Alexis de Tocqueville captured something of the difference between

We know the history of continental or civil law largely as a history of two periods,
that of roman law and that of modern continental law, beginning with the 're-
