Summary

Written in captivity in 1619-1621 and first published in 1631, Grotius’ Inleidinge tot de Hollandsche Rechts-geleertheyd was the first-ever comprehensive introductory textbook on Hollandic (private) law and jurisprudence in the Dutch language. It became one of the key and even founding texts in the tradition of Roman-Dutch law. This contribution first focuses on the writing and publication process, as well as on the aim, style and structure of the work. Afterwards, the main ideas of the Inleidinge on the law of persons, property law and the law of obligations are summarized. Finally, the fate and influence of the Inleidinge after Grotius’ death are briefly highlighted.
