Abstract
Laesio enormis essentially grew out of one rescript of the emperor Diocletian, which provided a remedy for a seller of land who received a price less than half the actual value of the land. In the Middle Ages, this idea developed into a general principle of contract law, when Diocletians text was extended to other contracts than sale, to both parties to the contract, and to other objects of the contract than land. The principle may still be found, to a greater or lesser extent, in a number of modern codifications of private law. This article studies the early development of laesio enormis in pre-Accursian glosses to Justinians Code.
