In 1774 Hallifax, Bishop of Gloucester, Regius Professor of Civil Law at Cambridge University and teacher of Sir Henry Maine, offered a course of lectures on "the Roman Civil Law." According to the Dictionary of National Biography, they were "attended by persons of the highest rank and fortune at the university." The lectures were published that year and reissued in 1775, 1779, 1795 and 1818. Geldart became Regius Professor in 1814. His contributions are interesting because they offer a snapshot of civil law studies at Cambridge a half-century later.
