The problem of relations between Christian and non-Christian countries was the subject of a protracted public controversy at the Council of Constance (1414–18), when the conflict between the Kingdom of Poland and the Teutonic Order (Ordo Cruciferorum) over Poland’s relations with the pagan communities of Lithuania came up for consideration. This conflict would not by itself justify the special attention of historians of the law of nations were it not for the defence of Polish–Lithuanian co-operation by a prominent Polish theologian and lawyer, Paulus Vladimiri, who may be considered one of the forerunners of a progressive doctrine on the fundamental legal issue of the coexistence of the Christian world with non-Christian countries. This chapter focuses on the work of Vladimiri, which anticipates significant doctrinal developments in the law of nations (particularly connected with European–Asian relations).
