Closing Time

War of the Austrian SuccessionRandall Lesaffer brings his general editorship of Oxford Historical Treaties to a worthy conclusion with his final editorial ‘Closing Time’, about the evolution of the treaty ratification process away from its explicitly religious underpinnings at the time of the Peace of Münster in 1648. John Louth also pays tribute to Randall’s eight years of diligent stewardship of OHT in his valedictory piece ‘Randall Lesaffer’s Museum of the History of International Law’.
