Esser Maxine, John of Salisbury and law

Esser Maxine, John of Salisbury and law, (dir. J. Hudson, University of St Andrews)

En cours depuis 2011/In preparation since 2011

Résumé/abstract :

Looking at all the works of John of Salisbury, the aim of my thesis is to concentrate on legal aspects contained therein, specifically how much law John knew; where he gained knowledge of law, in terms of sources used; how his thinking differs from his contemporaries, or otherwise. My research shall also consider specific aspects of legal discussion covered by John in his Policraticus, e.g. the legality of soldiers; how a prince should behave within the law; and the role of judges. Additionally, to what extent John appeared as a legal advisor to the Archbishop of Canterbury will be addressed.
