Summary/Abstract: The main object of this article is to present the concept of the code and the codification in modern times as a reflexio of the Ancient Roman practice. A survey has been made in order to explain the terminology and the notion of “code” and “codifying”. Our main goal is to determine the preconditions and the purposes of the three basic codifications in Ancient Rome – Lex Duodecim Tabularum, Codex Theodosianus and Corpus iuris of emperor Justinian. The conclusion is considered to be the impact of Roman legal heritage in the modern Bulgarian concept of the code and the codification, as well as in connection with the global problems of systematization of legislation – decodification, recodification etc.
