This is a thoroughly revised edition of the only full-scale work about possibly the most influential lawyer of all time, the Syrian Ulpian. Ulpian wrote a massive survey of Roman law in 213-17 AD and Tony Honoré argues that his philosophy of freedom and equality make him a pioneer of human rights.

Tony Honoré is Emeritus Professor at Oxford University. He was Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford from 1971-88. He has been described as 'the main architect of the modern South African law of trusts' (by Maruis de Waal), and is also a leading legal philosopher and historian.
`Review from other book by this author another triumph for H., providing important new insights.' R.W. Benet Salway, The Classical Review.
`His contribution to the prosopography is of top quality. As an essay on the analysis of style of the quaestors who drafted the laws, Honore's work is outstanding. The palingenesia (found on two disks in the back) listing all the laws of the Theodosian age certainly makes this a work of reference ... This allows scholars to study each individual law in minute detail.' C.Wade Meade, American Hist. Rev. June 2000.
`Not only should copies be found on the bookshelves of prosopographers and legal experts, but it is useful and valuable for any scholar interested in the late Roman or early Byzantine Empire.' C.Wade Meade, American Hist. Rev. June 2000.
Although this erudite book appeals to specialists, it also contributes significantly to the understanding of late Roman society./ (K. W. Harl, Tulane University, Choice, May 1999, Vol 36, no 9)
