Law and Learning in the Middle Ages

Proceedings of the Second Carlsberg Academy Conference on Medieval Legal History 2005

Edited by: Helle Vogt, Mia Munster-Swendsen

This volume contains papers presented at the conference on "Law and Learning in the Middle Ages" held at the Carlsberg Academy in Copenhagen during May 2005. In this book, a group of European and American scholars examine the theological and legal schooling that the 'creators' of the laws received at the major centers of learning in Europe. These scholars address a number of important questions concerning the creation and development of legal professions and the dynamics between legal practice and theoretical, learned approaches to jurisprudence.
