With the Annotata in Epistolam Pauli ad Philemonem, a commentary on St. Paul's Epistle to Philemon. First published in Paris in 1625, De Iure Belli Ac Pacis established the system of modern public international law, based on the concept of "droit naturel," a morality-based law that superseded the laws of individuals or nations. Though based on Christian natural law, Grotius advanced the novel argument that his system would still be valid if it lacked a divine basis. In this regard Grotius pointed to the future by moving international law in a secular direction. Ter Meulen and Diermanse, Bibliographie de Grotius 577.
