Abstract : To understand the authors of the Breviarium Alaricanum (sixth century in Aquitaine), their object, their logic, and their methods, there is no alternative but to make an internal study of the work itself. Thus, we proceed to an internal analysis of the code, focusing on those laws that concern the Jews. In the selection of the sources of Roman law and their organization in the Breviary, the prudentes operated some significant choices. This is even more apparent in the rewriting and commentaries. This work reflects the issues which existed in the Jewish western communities in that time, which the compilers knew they were still dealt with in tribunals.
