a city in which he carried out much of his flourishing activity, and where he was later appointed rector of the same University.
His writings were published posthumously, based on didactic notes.
Goudelin was among the first jurists to complement the study of Roman law with that of contemporary national law, addressing international law as a distinct field of study.

of the author.

Maximilian Wittebort (note on the title page).
