One cannot overestimate the contribution of the work of the Spanish Dominican Francisco de Vitoria (1483-1546) for the understanding and interpretation of the theology and philosophy of the Early Modern era. Vitoria´s main point of reference was the ´Summa Theologiae´ of Thomas Aquinas, whose analysis of ethical, juridical, and political questions (with reference to Aristotle´s philosophy) formed the basis for Vitoria´s broad discussion of problems we also face today. The treatise ´De lege´ (´About the Law´) explains the rationality of natural law, encourages the emancipation of civil law from ecclesiastical law, and calls for the submission also of the legislator to the law as well as the principle of publicness. These are all elements of a doctrine which has been fundamental for several generations of theologians, jurists, and philosophers.
The first volume of the ´Studies´ series deals with the central concepts of ´´Lex´´ and ´´Ius´´ and their systematic development within the political theory, philosophy, and law of the Middle Ages up to the School of Salamanca. This reconstruction of the specific form of a practical-juridical and politicalnormative body of knowledge in the Middle Ages focuses on the debates concerning the relationship between positive law, natural law and rational law, which shaped the European tradition of law, as well as the development of international normative regime. Among the contributors to this polylingual volume (with texts in German, English and Italian) are: Francisco Bertelloni, Luis Alberto De Boni, Norbert Brieskorn, Orazio Condorelli, Juan Cruz Cruz, John Doyle, Matthias Kaufmann, Jürgen Miethke, Kenneth Pennington, and Merio Scattola.
Im Mai 2012 wurde im Stadtarchiv Stralsund eine verschollen geglaubte Handschrift des portugiesischen Mathematikers Francisco de Mello (1490-1536) wiederentdeckt. Dabei handelt es sich um das Widmungsexemplar für König Manuel I. von Portugal, das 1521 in Paris hergestellt wurde und neben mehreren anderen physikalischen Werken als Glanzstück die Abhandlung Über in Flüssigkeiten befindliche Körper (De incidentibus in humidis) enthält, eine vollständige Überarbeitung einer im Mittelalter dem Archimedes zugeschriebenen, in depravierter Form überlieferten Schrift. De Mello leitet durch neue Beweise eine Methode zur Bestimmung der Volumenanteile in einem aus zwei Stoffen gemischten Körper her und löst damit nicht nur ein Problem, das eng mit dem sog. Problem der Krone verwandt ist, sondern stellt auch eine Verbindung zum Archimedischen Prinzip her. Der Band bietet eine ausführliche Einleitung, eine kritische Edition mit Übersetzung sowie einen umfassenden Kommentar zu der Schrift.

This book compares the respective concepts of the law of nations put forward by the Spanish theologian Francisco Suárez and by the Dutch jurist Hugo Grotius. This comparison is based on the fact that both thinkers developed quite similar notions and were the first to depart from the Roman conception, which persisted throughout the entire Middle Ages and the early Renaissance. In Rome, jus gentium was a law that applied to foreigners within the Empire, and one which was often mistaken for Natural Law itself. These two features can be found even in the works of writers such as Francisco de Vitória and Alberico Gentili. In Suárez and Grotius, the law of nations is applicable to an extra-national domain and inarguably becomes positive law. Yet, it also contains an ethical element that prevents it from transforming into a mere reflection of state interests. This work argues that this resemblance is hardly a coincidence: Grotius has read Suárez, and that influence has modified the foundations of his early thoughts on jus gentium. This should not be taken to imply that the Dutch jurist wasnt original: in both authors, the definition of the law of nations pursues his own internal logic. Nevertheless, Suárezs oeuvre allowed Grotius to solve a fundamental problem touched on in his early writings that had remained unanswered. Accordingly, his oeuvre promises to clarify one of the most significant moments in the History of International Law.
