Abstract

The topic of the interpretation of law and the use of analogy in Roman law, and in particular in Roman criminal law, is necessarily entwined with the – complex and debated – subject of the relationship between rhetoric and law. Through the examination of some jurisprudential texts on matters of criminal law, an attempt was made to highlight the use, by classical jurists, of the terminology and techniques of rhetoric, with particular regard to the status of scriptum et voluntas and ratiocinatio. This would confirm the close link between rhetoric and law, so that we can hypothesize a sort of contamination between rhetorical techniques and juridical techniques of legal interpretation.
