This chapter focuses on the influence of David Daube and Otto Lenel on Alan Rodger. Daube held the Regius Chair of Civil Law at Oxford from 1955 to 1970 and supervised Alan's doctorate from 1967 onwards. As with all his pupils, he had ‘an indelible influence’ on Alan who remained a lifelong admirer. Daube himself had inherited the technique of close linguistic analysis and textual criticism from another master, Otto Lenel. For Alan, Lenel was simply ‘the greatest scholar of Roman law in modern times’, and his ‘brilliant Palingenesia’ had ‘transformed the study of Roman law so as to render obsolete practically everything written up until that time’.

Keywords:   Alan Rodger, David Daube, Otto Lenel, Roman law
