LOPEZ, Rosalía Rodríguez. Principios de gobierno ad specula principis en las Novelas de Justiniano. Fundamina (Pretoria) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp. 801-813. ISSN 2411-7870.
Agapetus writes a political treatise on good governance (speculum principis); the book is representative of Byzantine political theory on governance and the good ruler. These principles influenced the programmatic and philosophical guidelines for action that the Emperor chose as emblems of his reign, at least after A.D. 534, as is shown by a study of the prefaces and epilogues of Justinian's Novels.
