  • Study of Medieval Law

    So true:

    “Many years ago Frederic William Maitland poured scorn on what he called ‘aimless medievalism,’ the effort spent on the study of matters historically and ideologically quite irrelevant, if not trivial.  The study of political ideas in the Middle Ages can never incur this charge of antiquarianism, because the governmental and political ideas dominant in the Middle Ages have created the very world which is ours.  Our modern concepts, our modern institutions, our political obligations and constitutional ideas are either direct descendants of those in the Middle Ages, or have grown up in direct opposition to them.”

    Walter Ullmann, Medieval Political Thought 229 (3d ed. 1970).
