Oxbow says: A dichotmoy exists in the medieval period between perceived lawlessness on the one hand and the idea that it was at this time that the foundations of modern legal practice were laid. The contributors to this colelction of sixteen essays argue for the centrality of law and lawmaking in the medieval period, linked with the development of medieval theology and CHristian doctrine. In this world of secular and religious authority, where both were lawgivers, the essays discuss how medieval society was legalised and by whom, and how the boundaries of legality were drawn, shaping both the licit and illicit. The chapters are divided into four main themes, examining the development of the structure of law, the writing of laws, the operation of the courts and law in practice, and the social, religious, political, intellectual and literary effects of the law on medieval society.
