Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide the student with the necessary skills to understand the evolution of criminal law in its historical-legal context.
In particular, after the completion of the course, students should be able to:
1. understand the elements that characterize the function of criminal law from its origins
2.  understand the social function of criminal law and the causes of its origins
3. understand the role the main institutes of Roman law played in defining Roman criminal law and the criminal trial of the time
4. grasp the peculiarities of Roman criminal law with respect to the successive developments
5. acquire the ability to place the various topics in a proper diachronic perspective, by distinguishing the differences and continuities with the current penal and criminal trial in a comparative framework
6. appreciate the repressive purpose of criminal law in its respective historical context.
At the end of the course, the student must be able to understand the fundamental legal and social issues that arose during the period of Archaic and Republican criminal law, which was the basis of the discipline in effect during these centuries, and even in its historical evolution.
