First published in 1918, Norman Institutions, a group of thematically linked essays on political and legal institutions, contains still-standard analyses of aspects of judicial administration, trial by jury and feudal custom in Norman lands. Haskins [1870-1937], the first important American medievalist, was a remarkably influential scholar. He taught at Harvard for many years, and he dominated the study of his field in the United States. Many of his interpretations, novel in their day, are incorporated into our understanding of the medieval world. Among his best-known books are The Rise of Universities (1923) and The Renaissance of the Twelfth Century (1927).
