The Codex Justinianus (Latin for “The Code of Justinian”) is one part of the Corpus Juris Civilis, the codification of Roman law ordered early in the 6th century AD by Justinian I, who was an Eastern Roman (Byzantine) emperor in Constantinople. Two other units, the Digest and the Institutes, were created during his reign. The fourth part, the Novellae Constitutiones (New Constitutions, or Novels), was compiled unofficially after his death but is now thought of as part of the Corpus Juris Civilis.
That the Holy Baptism be not Repeated.
(Ne sanctum baptisma iteretur).
We deem unworthy of the priesthood the priest who unlawfully repeats the holy rite of baptism. For we condemn the error of those who, despising the precepts of the apostles, by rebaptising those who have already received the Christian sacraments, do not purify them but defile and pollute them under pretense of cleaning them.1
