Assembly Places and Practices in Medieval Europe

Przednia okładka
Four Courts Press, 2004 - 251
In medieval England and elsewhere in northwestern Europe the moot or assembly represented the first resort to law and government. An institution, through which a free man could obtain judgment and recompense, defend himself or seek to change the law, it encapsulated many of the features that today distinguish judicial and political process in north-western Europe. A collection of ten papers by a number of academic specialists, this volume presents a European perspective on the origin and evolution of medieval royal, judicial and popular assemblies. It is the first study in over a century to focus on this remarkable aspect of the early political process.
