LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2001. This book examines how medieval people at all social levels thought about law, justice and politics, as well as their role in society. The author provides both a history of judicial developments in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries and contributes to the understanding of intellectual history in the period. Based on recent research in a number of disciplines, Medieval law in context offers an important new perspective on medieval English political, legal and social history. Each chapter, a self-contained study in its own right, focuses on a different facet of legal culture and experiences, and enables the reader to enter the realms of both perception and reality. Taken cumulatively, they combine to form a comprehensive picture of the state of legal consciousness: an ideological context in which to set the political and judicial developments that were occurring during the two centuries of tremendous social change. The enlightening approach offers new insights that will be greatly welcomed by scholars in the field and makes the specialised area of law accessible for the general reader interested in the medieval period.. Paperback. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
