Pufendorf, Divine Feudal Law (1695)
Samuel von Pufendorf, The Divine Feudal Law: Or, Covenants with Mankind, Represented, trans.
Theophilus Dorrington, ed. with an Introduction by Simone Zurbruchen
(Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 2002).
The Divine Feudal Law sets forth Pufendorf’s basis for the
reunion of the Lutheran and Calvinist confessions. This attempt to seek
a “conciliation” between the confessions complements the concept of
toleration discussed in Of the Nature and Qualification of Religion in Reference to Civil Society. In both works Pufendorf examines the proper way to secure the peaceful coexistence of different confessions in a state.
