The universities of Ghent and Liège were both established in 1817, the year of the discovery of the Veronese palimpsest. For the University of Liège, it meant that an eminent German academic, Leopold August Warnkönig, would bring the knowledge of the German Historical School not only to Liège, but also to Belgium, as he also taught at the Universities of Louvain and Ghent. Warnkönig is probably somewhat less known in Belgium than François Laurent, who followed a similar academic journey: studying in Liège and becoming a professor in Ghent. This article tries to shed some light on the achievements of Warnkönig - a great German scholar who deserves much credit for his contribution to Belgium jurisprudence.
