RABELLO, Alfredo Mordechai. Alcune note sul fas ed i precetti noachidi. Fundamina (Pretoria) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.756-764. ISSN 2411-7870.
The aim of this study is to examine some opinions about the fas with which the ancient inhabitants of the Roman territory, the Quiriti, Sabini and Romans, complied. Our study considers the ancient Roman sources and the writings of modern scholars; and includes some notes of comparison with the Noahide legislation that applies to the whole of humanity. The Jewish sources speak of a common understanding on the part of all mankind, as from the time of Adam. According to the Bible and the Masters of Judaism, divine legislation begins with the Lord's commands to Adam, and is completed with the laws of Noah. It is therefore evident that the commands given to Adam continue to be of value even to Noah and his descendants, namely all human beings (the sons of Adam and of Noah).
