Italian term or phrase: corpus civile
A literal translation would be "civil corpus" but this doesn't convince. I guess it refers to the "public section" of the library but I'd be grateful for any other suggestions.

"....cui si uniscono i lexici giuridici e le biblioteche legali, da dove si passa sempre in linea retta al corpo civile, con i suoi commentatori, interpreti e repetenti"
