I,1: Prolegomena. – I,2: Textus cum apparatu- – II.:Leges Novellae ad Theodosianum pertinentes edidit adiutore Th. Mommseno Paulus H. Meyer. At the beginning of the 19th century knowledge concerning the Codex Theodosianus was expanded, especially by the discoveries of Amedeus Peyron on the first five books. Starting from the prevailing level of knowledge, Gustav Hänel undertook the first attempt at a critical edition of the Codex Theodosianus in Bonn in 1842. Then, the brilliant Theodor Mommsen embarked on his next masterpiece. Following decades of preparatory work, Theodor Mommsen commenced his commission from the Berlin Academy of the Sciences with the critical edition of the Codex Theodosianus in 1898. Then, two years after the death of the great master: 1 November 1903 appeared the now three-volume work. The text and apparatus had already been printed during Mommsen’s lifetime, the comprehensive introduction (Prolegomena) was completed after the death of the great scholar by “amici quibus hoc munus Mommsensi voluntate delatum erat”. Mommsen’s edition earned outstanding acclaim. Paul Krüger too wanted to complete the plan that he had initially commenced with Mommsen and, although very advanced in years, he nevertheless started working on an edition of the Codex Theodosianus. Krüger was unable to see the plan through, reaching as he did only as far as liber VIII.
