Anglo-normannische »ritterliche« und keltische »barbarische« Kriegführung
In a comparative perspective, this article analyses the doctrinal debates that arose in Sunni and Shi’ite Islam after the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. During a couple of decades this text hardly brought about any response in Islam. From the 1980s onwards, an increasing number of prominent thinkers started confronting their legal tradition to that from which human rights derive. While comparing both legal systems, they contribute to major and contrasting developments in contemporary Islamic legal thought.
