Roemer, who relates his work to the philosophy of history, traces the ethical roots of international law from classical sources and the early Christian Church Fathers through Grotius and Kant. He also commends the role of the Vatican as an arbitrator in twentieth-century international relations. Roemer was a professor of philosophy at Notre Dame.
