Sale and Community from the Roman World
Exchange of goods with transferring property rights is an essential part of every organised human society and economy. All over the ancient world, traders and consumers negotiated a great deal of sales on local market places. The legal framework of sale is an indispensable institutional environment of a functioning economy. The paper presents a short outline of the high theory of Roman jurists about sale and compares it with every day parctice, with notarial documents .
