Chapter Summary

This chapter challenges the quoted statement of 1950 by showing not the similarities, but rather the differences between the approach in De iure praedae and in De iure belli ac pacis. It focuses on the systematic approach of legal matters which Grotius uses. After all, systematization is an important topic in the legal science of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, not only when it comes to finding leading legal principles, but also when the so-called institutional system is applied in the description of Roman law, as has been done by Donellus, or of legal phenomena such as Dutch private law, as has been done by Grotius in yet another of his main works.

Keywords: De iure belli ac pacis; De iure praedae; Hugo Grotius; international law; legal systematization; Roman law
