Bracton and His Relation to the Roman Law: A Contribution to the History of the Roman Law in the Middle Ages

Front Cover
Rothman, 1979 - History - 182 pages
Bracton's relation to the Roman Law is one of the most interesting questions in historical jurisprudence. In this, as in other matters connected with the early history of the English law, Bracton is the most important authority. The period at which he wrote, his ability as a jurist, the richness of matter in his work, all combine to make it necessary to exhaust the sources of knowledge to be derived from him. An index & marginal notes have been added to the translation, & the table of contents has been enlarged.
