Ideas:
“  What is Legal Humanism? Few categories of legal history are as central and evocative though at the same time as shamefully unclear. I am trying to shed some light on this question with a paper on "Legal humanism and us. On Jacobus Cujacius’ afterlife in the 18th and 19th century". Did you know Jacobus Cujacius is mostly known through his Opera Omnia published at the time of Domat, Pothier, and Montesquieu? A pointed preface (published in 1758) tells us that they needed Cujacius for designing new institutions and legislation; they in fact functioned with the reliable Roman texts worked out by Cujacius and his School. Then, at the time of 19th c. codifications, legal historians added the familiar account about the Golden Age of Jurisprudence, the hero who purified laws from Scholasticism, and of the Humanist victors and the Bartolist vanquished. This familiar account is sometimes influential still today.  ”
