109 GROTIUS ON DAMAGES IN CASE OF HOMICIDE: DE IURE BELLI AC PACIS 2,17,13 AND DE SATISFACTIONE 2,9 by EDWIN RABBIE (The Hague) Among the examples of liability for the consequences of damnum iniuria datum in Hugo Grotius' De iure belli ac pacis the following text (2,17,13) is note- worthy in that it mentions damages for the benefit of the relatives of a deceased person in case of homicide: Homicida iniustus tenetur solvere impensas si quae factae sunt in medicos et iis quos occisus alere ex officio solebat, puta parentibus, uxoribus', liberis, dare tantum quan- tum illa spes alimentorum ratione
This essay investigates the background and printing history of the five works written between 1526 and 1529 that constitute Erasmus' polemic against the Parisian theologian Noël de Bède (Béda).

The Reception of Grotius' Ordinum Hollandiae ac Westfrisiae pietas* EDWIN RABBIE** Rarely or never did a work by Grotius cause as many repercussions as Ordi- nUn! pi etas. Indeed, the author himself had already foreseen that hostile reac- tions would ensue, but presumably he would not have expected them to be so numerous, so fierce and so widely spread. l What is remarkable is the fact that these negative reactions were by no means confined to Counter-Remonstrant circles; also among the Remonstrants there were quite some people who thought that in this book Gratius had gone too far.
