Synopsis: In Lands, Laws, and Gods, Daniel Gargola examines the formulation and implementation of laws regulating the use of public lands, including the establishment of colonies, in Republican Rome (509-27 B.C.). During this period of territorial expansion, the Romans developed the basic legal forms by which they governed captured land, and they constructed the processes and ceremonies by which those forms were translated into practice. Using agrarian law as a case study and focusing especially on rituals that both validated and gave structure to the administrative process, Gargola demonstrates the fundamental connections between religion, law, and government. Essential acts in the administration of agrarian legislation, such as the transfer of land from one party to another and the granting of contracts for public works, depended upon ritual formulas and gestures, often within the context of religious ceremonies. By recovering these formulas and their larger significance, Gargola reconstructs an important dimension of Roman life.

Dust wrps to lower part back slightly wrinkled. ?Roman government was largely a matter of rites and forms.? Il rest effectivement toujours utile de rappler la place essentielle des rites dans le fonctionnement de l??Etat romain, tant en manière d?institutions et de magistratures, qu?en matière de religion, les deux sphères étant à la fois distinctes et solidaires, complémentaires et hiérarchisées comme l?exprimait Cicéron dans le ?de Legibus? (II, 69). C?est à l?étude de ces rites, cérémonies et gestes formalistes, sans distinguer arbitrairement et anachroniquement entre eux (les premiers relevant de la religion et les seconds du profane) mis en oeuvre dans le contexte des lois portant sur la terre (lois coloniales, d?assignation viritane ou agraires) qu?est consacré cet ouvrage intéressant et novateur.?
