    Die niederländische Staatsrechtswissenschaft von der Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts bis zur Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts – über deutsche Vorbilder und Inspirationen, in: ZNR 43 (2021), S. 181–207

Michael Stolleis dates the birth of constitutional law as an independent academic discipline and as a separate university course in ‘Germany’ around 1600. In the Low Countries, the emancipation of public law from Roman law occurred much later, namely at the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century. In this period the first professors of constitutional law took office at Dutch universities. They often had a ‘German’ background. In addition, they leaned heavily on German examples. Not only did they introduce courses in ‘national’ constitutional law (ius publicum Belgicumius publicum Belgicum), but they also started to teach the ius publicum Romano-Germanicumius publicum Romano-Germanicum and the ius publicum universaleius publicum universale. The ius publicum Belgicum ius publicum Belgicum gained a foothold at Dutch universities as an academic discipline from the middle of the 18th century, but plummeted at the beginning of the 19th century. The ius publicum universale ius publicum universale and the ius publicum Romano-Germanicum ius publicum Romano-Germanicum met the same fate. The study of national constitutional law resumed in 1830’s with the appointment of J. R. Thorbecke (1798 – 1872) as professor at Leiden University. This article discusses the development of these three academic courses in (what is now called) the Netherlands from the middle of the 18th century till the middle of the 19th century. We particularly focus on the methods that characterized constitutional law as an academic discipline at Dutch universities and on the influence of German Law professors on Dutch constitutional lawyers.

    Einheit Tirols als Kirchenstaat?, in: ZNR 43 (2021), S. 208–211

Among several projects aimed at averting the annexation of South Tyrol by Italy after World War I was also the occasionally discussed idea to hand over the entire province of Tyrol to the Pope as an Ecclesiastical State (“Kirchenstaat”). It seems that this idea was influenced by the more earnest plan of 1917 to invest the Pope with the principality of Liechtenstein to give him the secure position of a sovereign.
