The theme of natural or universal religion in the De Jure Belli ac Pacis is inserted in a chapter which deals with punishrnent; it is linked with the right to punish and to pardon, notably in what concems religion. It is introduced by a surprising reflection27 on the right of Princes28 to punish those "who violate to excess the law of nature or of peoples with regard to any particular thing", that is to say even if it is not a question of their own subjects (sect xi). But this right is immediately balanced by severe restrictions: One must not confound generally received custom (minus proprie naturale) with the law of nature (proprie naturale); one must distinguish between generally received principles29 and others which are less so, between principles and consequenees,30 and make sure the law transgressed was eommonly known and reeognized.
Whereas Malebranche's God is an absolute monarch, caring for nothing more than the magnification of his own glory, Leibniz has it that the King of Heaven cares for nothing more than the Stuart Brown 13 happiness of his subjects. Whereas Malebranche's God is accountable only to bimself, Leibniz's God is almost accountable to bis subjects. In concocting the word 'theodicy' Leibniz was not just giving the name to an existing branch of natural theology but in some measure changing its character. For the metaphor conjures up a picture of God being, so to speak, called to book and charged either with directly producing evil or being in some other way to blame for it.
