This volume brings together eleven articles by a distinguished medieval scholar. The major emphasis is on legal thought that resulted from the revival of Roman law at Bologna and on the influence this thought had on medieval “constitutionalism.” Includes such important studies as “A Romano-Canonical Maxim, Quod Omnes Tangit, in Bracton,” and “Status Regis and Lestat du Roi in the Statute of York.”
