Moral theology and the exercise of law in twelfth-century England

First Edition

Philippa Byrne

Published by Manchester University Press

Artes Liberales MUP Series

  • Offers a fresh and engaging perspective on the early development of the English common law, examining the moral and social consequences of twelfth-century changes
  • Adopts a unique approach to the subject by integrating both legal and theological texts and tackling a broad range of sources
  • Sets out a new account of twelfth- and early thirteenth-century English politics, in which questions of judgement, justice and mercy are central to conflicts over kingship and power
  • Contributes to recent debates about the development of accountability and rules of conduct and office, challenging historians to approach the medieval judge in an entirely different way
