- Novels (Novellae in Latin) is a term that from the fourth century referred to imperial edicts. The most famous are those issued during Justinian I's (q.v.) reign after publication of the Codex Justinianus (q.v.) in 534. The Novellae Constituiones (New Laws) include laws that ameliorate the condition of slaves, freeborn women, and children. Justinian had intended to make the collection, but never did, perhaps because Tribonian (q.v.) died unexpectedly. It was left to private jurists to do so. Another famous collection of Novels is that of Leo VI (q.v.).
