Stoikų etikos poveikio romėnų teisei bruožai.
The major influence the Roman law received was the moral stoic ideas of cosmopolitanism, inherent rights and equality of all human beings. The old strict, formal, customary law of town (polis) assigned merely to a narrow circle of citizens became inadequate for Rome becoming a wordly country. Therefore, having experienced the influence of stoic philosophy, the Roman lawyers humanised the law filing it with the concepts of justice, honourable transactions and common sense. The object of jurists’ observations was the spirit of statute and of the norm of law, not its development. A new and effective law system was created repudiating most formalities and improving the position of foreigners, women, children and slaves.
