Humanistische Jurisprudenz, Studien zur europaischen Rechtswissenschaft unter dem Einfluss des Humanismus.

I am quite ignorant in the fields of law and legal history, and hence not really qualified to judge this book, but have agreed to review it for Renaissance Quarterly, most of whose readers are equally unfamiliar with the subject, and I hope that the book will be reviewed in greater detail in the journals that deal directly with the theory and history of law.
The book is obviously a very important contribution to its subject, and the author's mastery of the original sources and their editions, and of the vast secondary literature from the fifteenth to the present century is most impressive. Troje is generous in recognizing the merits of many of his predecessors, especially of Domenico Maffei.
