Teaching of roman law in England: magister Vacarius

Cover Page


When the study of English legal history began, scholars have sought to measure of influence of the Roman law on the common law tradition. Legal historians, first of all, have started to attend how Roman law was studied and used. As a result became conventional that Roman law was introduced into England by Master, Magister Vacarius and he was one of significant figures in the twelfth-century history. At the same time, on pages of domestic researches we will not find separate works devoted to his biography, activity and oeuvre. This article turns basically to one disputable question connected with the locus of Vacarius's law teaching in England, particular in Oxford.
