Originally entitled De Legibus Et Consuetudinibus Angliæ. Henry of Bratton was a thirteenth century English judge and is best known for this work which attempts to describe rationally the whole of English law. The work is remarkable both for its wealth of detail and for its attempts to make sense out of English law largely in terms of the 'ius commune', the combination of Roman and canon law that was taught in the universities in Bracton's time. The framed version allows simultaneous viewing of the English and Latin texts.
