Review:

AWARDS "Theologians and Contract Law" has added yet another prize to its considerable list of awards and recognitions: the book has recently been awarded with the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz-Preis 2014 (German Research Foundation). The prize has been awarded annually to outstanding early career researchers since 1977 as both recognition and an incentive to continue pursuing a path of academic excellence. Read the author's reaction to winning the prize here. "Theologians and Contract Law" has been elected foreign "Juristisches Buch des Jahres" (Law Book of the Year) by Reinhard Zimmermann (Director MPI Privatrecht Hamburg) in "Neue Juristische Wochenschrift," 47/2013, pp. 3420: "Das Naturrecht der spatscholastischen "Schule von Salamanca" hat seit einigen Jahren Hochkonjunktur, aber nach wie vor kennt kaum jemand die einschlagigen Quellen. Decock kennt sie alle und schildert die Pragephase des modernen Vertragsrechts unmittelbar aus diesen Quellen mit einer stupenden Kenntnis ihrer theologischen und wirschaftspolitischen Hintergrunde. Das ist nicht nur rechtshistorisch beeindruckend, sondern fur jeden, der sich fur Vertragsrecht interessiert, faszinierend. Denn Decocks Thesen, dass Salamanca der Geburtsort des modernen Vertragsrechts und katholische Theologen seine Geburtshelfer gewesen seien, wird nach der Lekture dieses wichtigen Buchs kaum noch jemand widersprechen mogen." "Theologians and Contract Law" is winner of the Raymond Derine Prijs 2012 (Raymond Derine PhD Prize) and awarded the ASL-Prijs Humane Wetenschappen 2012 (ASL Award for Humanities 2012) by the Academische Stichting Leuven. MEDIA A radio-feature with Wim Decock was aired by BR 2 on Sunday 2 March 2014; click here to listen to the complete interview (or if you just want to read the German script please click here). REVIEWS Decock's book is undoubtedly a milestone in the study of the approach to contract law by early modern theologians. It is exhaustive and yet reader-friendly, a clear sign of the writer's mastery of the subject and, at the same time, a relief for the reader interested in but not very familiar with late mediaeval and early modern Continental legal thought. It highlights the insufficient amount of studies of the same calibre on related subjects, such as the progressive separation of conscience from canon law, the relationship between catholic and protestant moral theologians, the influence of moral theologians on the emergence of natural law, and so on. As with any great study, it equally fills and furthers our ignorance: one realises both how much one does not know, and how much there is still to study.

Descripción Brill, Netherlands, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The Roman legal tradition is the ancestor of modern contract law but there is no agreement as to how and when a general law of contract emerged. Wim Decock s thesis is that an important step in this evolution was taken by theologians in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. They transformed the Roman legal tradition (ius commune) by insisting on the moral foundations of contract law. Theologians emphasized that the enforceability of contracts is based on voluntary consent and that a contract should not enrich one party at another s expense. While their main concern was the salvation of souls, theologians played a key role in the development of a systematic contract law in which the founding principles were freedom and fairness. Theologians and Contract Law is winner of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz-Preis 2014 (German Research Foundation) as well as the Raymond Derine Prijs 2012 (Raymond Derine PhD Prize) and the ASL-Prijs Humane Wetenschappen 2012 (ASL Award for Humanities 2012) by the Academische Stichting Leuven.
