  • The Magna Carta just turned 800 years old this past June 15 as I was reminded on several websites I visit regularly, so I figured it was time to read it It is one of those documents whose importance is impressed on people in school, but that few actually read, so I figured that the procrastination went on long enough and that this would be the year I would read it I read the text off the Project Gutenberg website, which is a translation of the original into modern English, so it was an easy read [...]


  • It is fascinating seeing the foundation of worldwide constitutions and political thought, though my own interest is the way that the Magna Carta sought to regain a system of justice into England, one that was squashed by John after all the hard work of Henry II Fascinating, and short, read for anybody who is interested in political development or the thirteenth century.


  • A short yet comprehensive set of laws set by the barons on the king of england of which is known today as one of the major influence on human rights, bill of rights, and downsizing powers of the king of england You can say it is a founding stone for limiting the powers of an ultimate ruler who owns everything under the support of the pope


  • The roots of freedom still entrenched in English Welsh law It s a very quick read, especially now it only comprises 3 surviving clauses yes, it is still statute law for any who didn t know albeit, the most significant is clause 29, which now gives all citizens as we are all freemen freedom, liberties and rights to go about their business as democracy should.Back then, however, freedom was only for those born into wealth, power and privilege, and even after 800 years we are still only very new to [...]


  • I enjoyed reading learning about this historic document written 800 years ago Long before the The Bill of Rights, people recognized their natural rights declared them in the Magna Carta Right to own property, right to be ruled by law not men, right to be judged by peers, right to pass on property to posterity, right to have witnesses to prove guilt, right to engage in commerce however they d like Wherefore we will firmly order that the English Church be free, that the men in our kingdom have hol [...]


  • A seminal document in English history Some of it is wildly inappropriate due to things like sexism and antisemitism However, other parts remain highly relevant today, such as 38 In future no official shall place a man on trial upon his own unsupported statement, without producing credible witnesses to the truth of it 40 To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice This clause is one of the few from the Magna Carta that is still in effect in English law 45 We will appoint as j [...]


  • Seminal document Other reviewers have said all that needs to be said For my part, I ll just add that there s something cool about basically witnessing the germination of a modern legal system, a deeply satisfying assertion of rights.



  • Of great historical significance but can it really be considered a book Either way, I enjoyed reading this Angevin charter.
