Learning Objectives

The course aims to examine the origins of the problems of Public Order and State Security; it
also aims to explore the answers that Roman law constructed to achieve the good of Security
(external and internal).
History cannot offer abstract models to which to conform; it cannot give answers to questions
that the present imposes as urgent; it cannot offer confirmations to answers that have already
been predetermined. But since every historical reality, even the present one, is a reality that is
naturally in flux (it has its roots in the past, its complexity in the present, its developments in the
future), history teaches us to become aware of the plurality of solutions to the problems of
existence (of states and of men in states) in order to help change in order to achieve the best
possible well-being.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

A) Knowledge and understanding: knowledge of the basics of the subject and, consequently,
ability to read and understand doctrinal texts relating to the course subjects.
B) Applying knowledge and understanding: ability to apply the knowledge acquired on the
original texts of Roman jurists and to independently develop the path of thought from those texts
in order to arrive at a concrete understanding of their value and theoretical contribution.
C) Autonomy of judgement (making judgements): ability to elaborate one's own legal discourse
on various subjects, in particular on obligations and contracts, real rights, commercial
experience, taking into account their historical projection and evolution over the centuries.
D) Communication skills: ability to present other people's thoughts in a clear and reasoned
manner (explanation and reworking of the case through the analysis of related institutes) and
ability to put forward one's own thoughts in a legally effective form with particular attention to
argumentative methods.
E) Learning skills: ability to also proceed autonomously in learning, possibly aimed at the
development of autonomous research with a Romanist or more purely historical approach.
