Judge and Jurist

Alan Rodger has a special fascination for Lenel's work and, more generally, the compilation of the Digest and identification of the original context of the now fragmentary texts of the Roman jurists. The starting point for that endeavour was Lenel's two great works: the Palingenesia iuris civilis of 1889 and Das Edictum Perpetuum, the third edition of which appeared in 1927. This chapter looks briefly at two areas in which Alan was particularly interested and in which he did much to develop Lenel's work. The aim of the exercise is to provide two footnotes to Rodger. Specifically, the chapter comments on Rodger's short study entitled ‘The palingenesia of Paul's commentary on the actio aquae pluviae arcendae’ (1988) and another study ‘Vadimonium to Rome (and elsewhere)’.
