Chapter Summary

About Felix Liebermann's skill as a reader and publisher of old sources there is no doubt. The question this chapter addresses is: was this skill natural or was it induced by his intellectual background? This is not an idle query. The milieu - that is to say the times and places in which Liebermann first studied and then worked - were intellectually very stimulating, and could not fail to deeply influence the receptive spirit. In short: no subject is more suitable a volume on Liebermann than the question of his intellectual background. The historical study of jurisprudence continued to be identified with Göttingen during the nineteenth century. The work of the participants in the conference on Liebermann testify to a renewed interest in Anglo- Saxon legislation and to a certain vitality in the area of Anglo-Saxon legal studies.

Keywords: Anglo-Saxon legal studies; Felix Liebermann; Göttingen; intellectual milieu
