Abstract

The pivotal role of Roman law is well established in the historiography of the civil law tradition. Compared to this, its role in the intellectual history of international law is a marginal subject. This paper maps the place and role in the intellectual development of international law from Antiquity to the present.

Keywords: history of international law, Roman law, private law
