Workshop Great Christian Jurists in the Low Countries

Activity: Organizing, contributing or attending an eventOrganizing or contributing to an eventAcademic


This workshop is in the context of an international book project, Great Christian Jurists in the Low Countries, in the Cambridge Law and Christianity Series (Cambridge University Press). The volume, edited by Wim Decock (Leuven) and Pim Oosterhuis (Maastricht), wants to reveal the impact of Christianity on the development of law in the Low Countries over a period of nine centuries.

It starts with the seminal contribution to the medieval ius commune by the canonist Alger de Liège at the end of the eleventh century and ends with Josse de Mertens de Wilmars’s protagonist role as a judge in the creation of a European ius commune in the second half of the twentieth century.

During the workshop, the different authors will present and discuss their contributions on these jurists, thus critically contributing to the coherence of the book project as a whole.
