ABSTRACT
It is well known that Hittite legal codes consists of many subjects pertaining to criminal, family and property laws. These legal matters found in detail in Roman, Judaic and Islamic laws as well. In our study we have tried to explain how Hittite legal codes had their effect particularly on Roman Law as well as how crimal, family, property and obligation law shaped Judaic and other legal codes. Similarities between Islamic and Judaic laws shows their close resemblance of these legal codes. Hence, we will compare these two laws by pivoting on Hittite legal codes. Since both Hittite legal codes and Roman Laws are mostly of Anatolian origin our study will encompass legal codes meshed into poetry of the contemporary Anatolian culture. Since the Anatolian culture harmonized Hittite and Roman Laws into its culture before the Islamic Law rule it makes appealing to look into similarities.
