Synopsis: What are the origins of the Western Legal Tradition - that unique tradition characterised by constitutionalism, representative institutions and rule by law?
Ellen Goodman finds answers embedded in the Graeco-Roman world and in the origins of Christianity. She shows the Roman Church providing tenuous threads to the emergence of modern legal systems in the High Middle Ages.
Goodman links Christianity into its origins in Greek philosophy and Judaism. She shows how the Roman Church used Christianity and Roman law and how the medieval lawyer popes developed canon law.
The origins of feudalism are traced, and its transition to feudal law; the emergence of common law; the origin of constitutionalism and the origins of parliament, especially as developed by the early Tudor monarchs.
Goodman uses extensive extracts from original writings to highlight the broad stream that runs through the tradition, avoiding the tributaries, so that readers will better understand a foundation stone of our modern world.

The strength of the book is its clear focus on the heart of the tradition: constitutionalism, representative institutions and rule by law. Goodman links Christianity to its origins in Greek philosophy and Judaism. She delves into the position of the Roman Church as the tenuous, Dark Ages conduit. Feudalism lives and dies and the common law and parliament emerge. The author accurately and vividly charts the main currents, avoiding both the shoals and the myriad tributaries, and so enables readers to have a clearer and deeper understanding of our present legal system.
