Law, Peace, and Justice in Medieval and Early Modern Europe
This series seeks to bring together work on ‘peace-keeping’ amongst medieval and early modern Europeans in the broadest sense: from criminal justice to transitional justice, from the resolution of interpersonal conflict within communities to treaty-making between states, from feud to refuge to reparations, from criminal trials to cultures of toleration. The series crosses conventional boundaries between medieval and early modern and welcomes work that crosses disciplinary boundaries, too, or that uses interdisciplinary approaches to subjects such as law, theology, art, political philosophy, social practice, etc. It aims broadly to promote work that helps us understand how law and justice were implicated in the ways in which people in the past imagined, implemented, and used ‘peace’, both within Europe and as Europeans moved out around the globe.
