Institutes of Divine Jurisprudence. With Selections from Foundations of the Law of Nature and Nations

Title page

First published in 1688, Thomasius’s Institutes attempted to draw a clear distinction between natural and revealed law and to emphasize that human reason was able to know the precepts of natural law without the aid of Scripture. His Foundations published in 1705 revised the theory he had put forward in the Institutes.

Institutes of Divine Jurisprudence. With Selections from Foundations of the Law of Nature and Nations. Edited, Translated, and with an Introduction by Thomas Ahnert (Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 2011).
