Dates of birth and death unknown. Roman jurist of the first century A.D.; a representative of classical Roman jurisprudence.
Sabinus expressed the interests of the large property owners. His supporters and followers constituted one of the leading schools of Roman jurisprudence—the Sabinian school. Along with certain other jurists, Sabinus was granted the right to give official legal interpretations that were binding on the courts. In his main work, Libri tres juris civilis, he treated the basic questions of civil law. Much of Sabinus’ work was incorporated into the Digest.
