ALCUIN’S outline of his theory of asylum in a church (Epist. ) was designed to supply his friends at the Frankish court with his point of view as opposed to that of Theodulph of Orléans, with whom Charlemagne and his royal court at law evidently had sided. The text compiled by Alcuin consists of instances of canon law and Roman law. Under the direction of Tribonian, the Corpus Iurus Civilis was issued in three parts, in Latin, at the order of the Emperor Justinian. The Codex Justinianus () compiled all of the extant (in Justinian's time) imperial constitutiones from the time of Hadrian. It used both the Codex Theodosianus and private collections such as the Codex Gregorianus and Codex Hermogenianus.

So, from the very beginning of Roman law, Roman women had better opportunities to become emancipated than in many other cultures. But the real process of independence took place at the start of the second century BC. In the year , a so-called Lex Oppia was voted, which forbade all women in the city of Rome any luxury.
