First, the institutions of guardianship, like the English uses and trusts, played a vital ro le in the disposition of property after death. A full treatment of Roman Law of succession necessarily required a consideration of various guardianship relationships, and the traditional separation of such relationships 26 Chapter 1 from the law of testate and intestate succes sion would have appeared arbitrary to someone, like Gans, who was concerned with expounding the substantive Roman Law of succes sion as a coherent whole.
Gans' s vis ion of Roman Law derived its coherence from the function it played in this debate. Four aspects of Gans's valuation Roman Law overlapped and reinforced each other in the debate. First, the success of Roman Law and its pattern of historical development supported the codification of German law. Gans constructed a very specific vision of Roman Law that derived from the c1assical Roman Law and especiaUy from the consolidation of Roman Law under Justinian. The exposition of Roman Law in the Digest occupied a privileged position and was viewed by Gans - and others, including Savigny 125 - as the paradigm for a comprehensive codification of private law.
Roman Law was simultaneously a source of the law of succession and a model for its reform. But Thibaut and Gans placed quite different emphasis on the goals of succession in their respective systematic treatments of Roman Law. Thibaut was more concerned to enhance the rational administration of the laws by offering Roman Law as a valid source of uniform, coherent, and accessible legal authority. Re was far more concerned than Gans with elaborating Roman Law doctrines of succession, and he accordingly followed the contents and form 38 Chapter 1 of the Digest more closely than Gans.
