Chapter Summary

This chapter contains the English translation of chapter III of Hugo Grotius' Mare Liberum, and screenshots of each page of the original text written in Latin. If the Portuguese are basing their claim upon the apportionment made by Pope Alexander the Sixth, it takes under consideration before every thing else the question of whether or not the Pope was interested exclusively in settling the disputes between the Portuguese and the Castilians. The author follows from the opinions laid down by Cajetan and by Victoria as well as from the preponderant authority of both theologians and canonists, that there is no sound claim to be urged against the East Indians, either on the ground that the Pope as lord of the East Indian lands gave away the territory by an unrestricted act of donation, or on the ground that the inhabitants fail to acknowledge the papal dominion.
