Law before Gratian

Law in Western Europe c. 500-1100: Proceedings of the Third Carlsberg Academy Conference on Medieval Legal History 2006

Edited by: Per Andersen, Mia Munster-Swendsen, Ditlev Tamm, Helle Vogt

This volume, the third in the series, contains the proceedings from the "Law before Gratian" conference. The book covers a wide range of topics, from individual and local case studies to broader reflections on the status and function of law, in medieval European societies before the scholastic legal 'revolution' of the later 12th century. Seeking to broaden the view of constituted law in this period, the articles examine these earlier developments in their own right and provide new insights into the variety and complexity of early and high medieval approaches to law and jurisprudence. Students and scholars of European legal culture and of medieval history in general should find this collection of essays a useful contribution to the continuing discussion about the development of European law, legal principles, and notions of justice.~
