This collection is unfortunately lost, but many of its provisions were incorporated into the Visigothic Code, although, no doubt, subjected to important and numerous modifications in the course of centuries. At the beginning of the sixth century, Alaric II promulgated the Breviarium Alaricianum, a body of laws compiled mainly from the Codes of Justinian and Theodosius, which collection was the source of the subsequent Lombard and Bavarian Codes. From the two compilations of Euric and Alaric, under the reigns of Kings Chintasvintus and Recesvintus (649-652) was formed the Forum Judicum, or Visigothic Code …” Preface, The Visigothic Code (Forum Judicum) (Scott, S.P., ed. and trans.); Library of Iberian Resources Online, <http://libro.uca.edu/vcode/visigoths.htm> [online version of S.P.
