Presentazione / Presentation

Medieval thinkers have developed natural law theory significantly and exerted an enduring influence on subsequent reflection. While the contribution of the Latin tradition of medieval thought has been widely studied, there is a growing number of studies on the natural law theory of the Byzantine, Jewish, and Islamic traditions.

The conference will consider to what extent the various medieval traditions of natural law concur or differ, and on what grounds. It shall also consider whether they contain theoretical resources for addressing contemporary concerns about natural law.
