« Ius et Religio ». Droit, religions anciennes et christianisme dans l’Antiquité

LXXVe session de la société internationale Fernand de Visscher pour l’histoire des droits de l’Antiquité

*  *  *

Published on Thursday, June 23, 2022

Abstract

Fernand De Visscher was a professor of Belgian Roman law, a humanist convinced of the importance of scientific exchanges between foreign scholars, to which the laws of antiquity – as the common matrix of European legal systems – lend themselves so well. Romanists and legal historians from all over the world will thus come together for this anniversary session around the theme: "Ius and Religio. Law, Ancient Religions and Christianity in Antiquity". The contemporary crisis of universalisms, as well as the resurgence of fundamentalisms, both religious and secular, require more than ever an informed look at “religion” in its historical and institutional relationships with law, the state, and society.

Argument

The Law Faculty of Université Saint-Louis - Bruxelles is organizing the 75th session of the Société Internationale Fernand De Visscher pour l’Histoire des Droits de l’Antiquité (SIHDA) from 13 to 16 September 2022, around the theme: “Ius and Religio. Law, Ancient Religions and Christianity in Antiquity". The conference is organized with the support of the Research Council, the International Relations Unit of the Université Saint-Louis – Bruxelles, the Centre de Recherches en Histoire du Droit, des Institutions et de la Société (CRHiDI), the Centre de droit privé (CePri), the École des sciences philosophiques et religieuses (ESPR), as well as the Comité voor Rechtsgeschiedenis Koninklijk Vlaamse Academie van België voor Wetenschappen en Kunsten, the House of European History, and the Fund for Scientific Research (F.R.S.–FNRS).

Fernand De Visscher was a professor of Belgian Roman law, a humanist convinced of the importance of scientific exchanges between foreign scholars, to which the laws of antiquity – as the common matrix of European legal systems – lend themselves so well. Romanists and legal historians from all over the world will thus come together for this anniversary session around the theme: "Ius and Religio. Law, Ancient Religions and Christianity in Antiquity". The contemporary crisis of universalisms, as well as the resurgence of fundamentalisms, both religious and secular, require more than ever an informed look at “religion” in its historical and institutional relationships with law, the state, and society. By the way, what are we talking about when we use this word? And how does this look at the integration of a system of positive law, both in terms of public law and private law? Finally, what hindsight do the Romans, who invented law as an unprecedented technology for social ties in the ancient worlds, while they produced a civic form of the worship of their gods, provide us in this regard?
