Medieval Law in Context: The Growth of Legal Consciousness from Magna Carta to The Peasants’ Revolt (Manchester Medieval Studies)
Publisher: Manchester University Press 2001
Offering an important new perspective on medieval political, legal, and social history in England, Anthony Musson examines how medieval people at all social levels thought about law, justice, politics, and their role in society. He provides a history of medieval law and judicial developments in the 13th and 14th centuries, while interweaving within each chapter a special focus on different facets of legal culture and experience. This illuminating approach reveals a comprehensive picture of two centuries worth of tremendous social change.
