Abstract

In recent decades, interest in Neo-Latin studies shows a distinct upward tendency. Still, the poetry of Dutch humanists constitutes a literature which is difficult to access. However, much work has been done in the past years to open up the poetry of Hugo Grotius. Within a few years the first phase of the edition in the series De Dichtwerken van Hugo Grotius will have been completed with the publication of the juvenilia, the poetry written between 1591 and 1608. Consequently, a well-rounded whole of Grotius' poetry will have become accessible for research and systematic reference. In the meantime, as no in-depth study of Grotius' poetry as preserved in manuscript form and printed edition has ever been undertaken before, a first attempt of closer research and a systematic inventory of the material provided a mass of new data. This led to the repudiation of quite a few traditional conceptions concerning the nature and merits of Grotius' poetical efforts and the correlation of the respective editions of poems. Some major results of this research are presented here in general outline. They are all enlarged on in full detail in my Grotius Poeta (The Hague 1981) and Inventory of the Poetry of Hugo Grotius (Assen 1982). Reference is made to both of these works throughout this article, which has no claims for itself but to offer an overall picture by means of an introductory essay. Therefore footnotes are omitted here altogether.

In this Introductory Note Grotius’ views on Good Faith, Humanity, and Justice as exposed in De fide et perfidia (1602) are addressed with reference to the theories he developed in De jure praedae (1605) and later elaborated in De jure belli ac pacis (1625).

La Cour internationale de Justice, l'un des cinq organes principaux de l'Organisation des Nations Unies, et son organe judiciaire principal, est installée à La Haye, loin du Siège de l'ONU, dans la sérénité du Palais de la Paix, don d'Andrew Carnegie à l'idéal de la paix mondiale.
Cet ouvrage très bien documenté paraît à l'occasion du jubilé des cinquante ans de la Cour. L'ouvrage comporte douze chapitres, et est préfacé par le Président de la Cour. Avec une riche iconographie, il illustre l'idée du règlement pacifique des différends à travers les âges, qui devait trouver sa consécration lors des conférences de la paix de La Haye. Il évoque la création de la Cour, remontant à l'époque de sa devancière dans l'entre deux-guerres. Il traite du droit et de la procédure de la Cour internationale de Justice et décrit la composition de la Cour dans sa diversité juridique et culturelle. Des statistiques, la biographie de tous les juges et une bibliographie complètent cet hommage remarquable à un idéal universel et séculaire.
