Glover, G.B. (2005) Duress in the Roman-Dutch law of obligations. Fundamina : A Journal of Legal History, 11 . pp. 26-49. ISSN 1021-545X




[From the introduction]: The institutional writers and practitioners of 16th, 17th and 18th century Roman- Dutch law looked to the Roman law of obligations to form the foundation upon which they erected their structure of private law. During the course of the reception, the idea was that Roman law was supposed to be referred to and applied only where the indigenous law did not already cater for a legal problem.
