This chapter presents the sources and editions of medieval learned law. As well as guidance on the texts, it offers advice on how to approach the study in more general terms. It draws on and updates an earlier introductory booklet which appeared in Dutch and German under the title Utrumque Ius. The discussion covers the text of the Corpus iuris civilis, Roman and Canon law, the Corpus iuris canonici, procedural law, feudal law and a strategy for research.

Keywords:   medieval learned law, sources, Corpus iuris civilis, Roman law, canon law, Corpus iuris canonici, procedural law, feudal law
