Reassessing Legal Humanism and its Claims: Petere Fontes?
The traditional grand narratives of European legal history have begun to be questioned, to the extent that the nature and legacy of legal humanism now deserve closer scrutiny. Building on the groundbreaking work by Douglas Osler, who has been critical of the traditional narratives, this volume interrogates the orthodox views regarding legal humanism and its legacy. Fundamentally reassessing the nature and impact of legal humanism on the narratives of European legal history, these 14 essays bring together the foremost international experts in related fields of legal and intellectual history to debate the central issues.
