Description

This project explores medieval human rights by examining legal codes and proclamations in Europe from 500 AD to 1215 AD. While most legal scholars see the emergence of human rights with the Magna Carta, this conclusion neglects an analysis of the beginnings of European human rights from the early years of the medieval period. My research, using the historical method of legal research and close textual analysis, will analyze documents for the development of human rights in the subtext of legislation from the Code of Justinian to the Magna Carta.
