The attitude of the common lawyers to the church the century before the Reformation is here revealed in a number of manuscript readings on Magna Carta c.1. The readers focus on grants to the church, sanctuary, benefit of clergy, and the jurisdiction of the church courts. The latest of these readings dates to about 1530, but the editor has added two later manuscripts: a series of responses by a common lawyer, c.1535, apparently to questions put by those revising canon law; and Edward Hall's reading of 1541 on 'Seint Eglise' using 2 Hen. IV c.1 as his text. An introduction will study the relationship between the manuscripts and outline the legal developments as shown by the readings.
