47] In such an intellectual climate, some historians were now prepared to take more seriously the “prehistory” of international law before Grotius. Even as the moral underpinnings of international law were being rediscovered, the first hints of unease with Vanderpol’s arguments began to appear.

First, as a result of the self-conscious effort of Enlightenment writers to characterize a body of international law as independent of theological premises, the foundations of the ius belli and the idea of just war subsumed within it were located no further back in time than Grotius and his immediate predecessors, thereby effacing the putative role of Augustine in the development of the law of war.
