Tony Honore is the Emeritus Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford University. An Honorary Fellow of All Souls College, Professor Honore has been teaching at Oxford for over sixty years. He is the author over twenty books on legal philosophy, trust law, and Roman legal history, including (with H.L.A. Hart) Causation in the Law, two editions of Ulpian, Law in the Crisis of Empire, the edited volumes Making Law Bind and Responsibility and Fault, and About Law.
`Modern legal systems in the West, together with many beyond that geographical and cultural boundary, are literally inconceivable without the heritage of Roman law. Inconceivable precisely because the basic concepts with which we habitually analyse legal systems, Property, Obligations, Contract, Delict, Persons, Procedure, are all derived from the system of law developed by the Romans in the millennium around the turn of the eras...The Digest is a fundamental part of the legal and cultural heritage of modern Europe. One, amongst a number, of Tony Honore's lifetime achievements has been to deepen immensely our understanding of its nature.' Andrew Lewis, The Modern Law Review
