Res Publica and the Roman Republic explores the political crisis at the end of the Roman Republic through the changing perceptions of the political sphere itself, the res publica. Partisan clashes over the political sphere, thus conceived, formed an important part of this crisis, though have received relatively little attention to date, partly because of the difficulty of precisely defining. Roman law. As well as the constant rivalry between patricians and plebeians, the Republic is also known as a period in which the power of Rome reached the whole peninsula of Italy and Roman law was founded with the Law of the Twelve Tables in BC. Moreover, it is also a period when many wars took place for equality between the Roman inhabitants.

The main form of ownership was that recognized by Roman civil law (ex iure Quiritium). All Roman citizens, as well as non-Roman citizens with the right to. The law of property and possession In Roman law (today as well as in Roman times), both land and movable property could be owned absolutely by individuals.

This conception of absolute ownership (dominium) is characteristically Roman, as opposed to the relative idea of ownership as the better right to possession that underlies the Germanic systems and English law. This law was repealed a few years later. History tells that the bronze tables on which the laws were engraved were lost when Rome was sacked by the Gauls in BC.

Later their text was reconstructed from memory; and generations and generations of Roman schoolboys learned it by heart. Only a few fragments exist today.

Roman property law began with the concept of ownership (dominium), and it applied principally to slaves and land. The principal requirements were comparatively simple: one only had to prove a legitimate transaction and unchallenged ownership for a year in the case of movable property and two years in the case of land.

In the classical law and later, it denoted the contrectatio ("handling") of most types of property with a particular sort of intention – fraud and in the later law, a view to gain. It is unclear whether a view to gain was always required or added later, and, if the latter. The rise and fall of the Roman Republic occupies a special place in the history of Western civilization.
