Citations for the uninitiated

Early modern Jesuit colleges were centers of normative knowledge production.

Narrating Chinese Legal Tradition Across Time and Space

Assessing collaborations in the intersection of law, politics, and the society and facilitating a deepened dialogue with China requires not only profound knowledge of Chinese legal thinking and legal tradition(s), but also crossing our national traditions when practicing Chinese legal history (in a global perspective). From 12 until 16 June, 15 scholars of Chinese law from China, Europe and the United States followed the invitation of the Max Planck Institute for Legal History and Legal Theory (mpilhlt) to participate in the first of what is meant to be a series of workshops on Chinese legal tradition.

Diálogos en el silencio, en la palabra y en la alegría

Las respuestas, si las hay, han implicado un diálogo en el silencio, en la palabra y en la alegría con hombres y mujeres de antaño y hogaño.
