- In this paper I argue for a rule-of-law-reading of Ulrik Huber’s fundamental law on freedom of property. My aim is to show
that there is enough contemporary intellectual and legal context for such a reading. I do so by arguing along three lines:
the medieval tradition that rooted the origin of private property in natural law, protection of property in the constitution
of Holland in the seventeenth century, and property rights protected by fundamental law in English common law.
