Hugo Grotius, the father of international law, is a crucial figure in this process. 49 In his attempt to explain the foundations and principles of international law, Grotius addressed a wide variety of issues in De Jure Belli ac Pacis (hereafter referred to as JBP), ranging from the nature of state sovereignty to options for conflict resolution between countries. Among his most important ideas were those concerning the laws of war. Grotius devoted a great deal of thought to jus ad bellum questions, but he also addressed jus in bello questions as well.

The non-combatant is almost certainly “innocent” regarding the issues of the conflict. . Rulers and commanders may respect the non-combatant because there are no practical military reasons why they should not do so and because there are good religious and ethical reasons why they should. 51 By the twentieth century, a central portion of this body of law would be legal provisions for the protection of non-combatants, to include civilians, in armed conflict. 53 While much of international humanitarian law concerns members of the armed forces who have become hors de combat, the provisions concerning the protection of civilians are most relevant here.

Following his conversion, he returned to Africa and quickly rose through the church hierarchy, becoming Bishop of Hippo in 395. Augustine remained in Hippo until his death in 430. It was from this locale that he wrote brilliant pieces that became the basis of much of Roman Catholic doctrine, including his magnum opus, De Civitate Dei, or the City of God. City of God was the largest, and arguably the most important, of Augustine’s works. Completed near the end of his life and thirteen years in the making, City of God was written in the aftermath of the sack of Rome by Visigoth barbarians in 410.
