Title: Just War and Holy War: Again
Author(s): WALZER, Michael
Journal: Ethical Perspectives
Volume: 24    Issue: 1   Date: 2017   
Pages: 7-20
DOI: 10.2143/EP.24.1.3200591

Abstract :
This article describes the arguments of Paul Vladimiri, a 15th century Polish philosopher/theologian, about the justice of war (jus ad bellum). It defends his claim that natural reason sets limits on warfare and, specifically, bars holy wars, like the crusades of the Teutonic Knights – and, by extension, the wars of jihadist militants today. It also bars the ideological crusades of secular militants.
