A volume focusing on post medieval legal developments, this book examines in particular the work of Hugo Grotius, his sources and his influences. It includes eight studies in English, seven studies in French, and one study in German. Other aspects of the volume concern the history of legal scholarship in the Netherlands in the 17th and 18th centuries; the teaching of the subject at the law faculties of the Universities of Leyden and Franeker; and some doctrines of private law (property, contract, succession).
