The Origins of the English Parliament, 924-1327

J. R. Maddicott

  • Covers the evolution of the English parliament from its Anglo-Saxon origins to the fully fledged lords and commons of the early fourteenth century
  • Embeds the development of parliament in wider processes of social change, such as the rise of the knightly class and the growing importance of provincial opinion
  • Illuminates the close relationship between political turning-points such as the Norman Conquest and Magna Carta and the broader process of institutional change
  • Shows clearly how the origins of parliament lie not in the thirteenth and fourteenth century, as is often assumed, but much further back in a more distant Anglo-Saxon past
