. In particular, this chapter is interested in family, household and kinship, themes that have cropped up throughout this book. It situates the detailed explorations presented in each of the previous chapters alongside an exploration of Anglo-Saxon historical information, with a particular emphasis on contemporary (seventh-century) law codes. After all, the people buried in these sites were alive when the laws were first spoken about and written down, and as a result they were constructed from the same Zeitgeist , the same blood, sweat and attitudes of the

counts of Modena and Piacenza are mentioned fighting side by side. 37 While we have no information on how the kings of northern Iberia secured military support, the Anglo-Saxon and Frankish realms imposed heavy fines on those who refused to join the army. 38 In England in the mid-Saxon period, King Ine’s law code lists fines varying between 30 and 120 shillings according to the social status of the person. 39 The lowest fine was for ceorls, a category which would seem at this time to indicate free peasants. In the Frankish world, a fine of 60 solidi , called

be further illustrated by means of a correlation. The categories of ballot access requirements devised above can be assigned codings, with ‘easy’ ballot access laws coded 3, ‘medium’ ballot access laws coded 2, and ‘hard’ ballot access laws coded 1.22 If right-wing extremist parties consistently record higher electoral scores in countries where ballot access requirements are easy and lower electoral scores in countries where ballot access requirements are hard (as was hypothesized above), given these codings, a positive correlation coefficient should be observed

those whom the Church labelled heretics. 12 When Justinian I (527–65) systematized the Roman law code he equated heresy with treason, and made both capital offences. His legislation against the Manichaeans was particularly harsh: ‘We decree that those who profess the pernicious error of the Manichaeans shall have no legal right or official permission to live in any place in our republic [ sic ] and

the Herero War Without doubt, the Kaiser’s seemingly untrammelled power found some concrete limits. In 1886, the Protectorate Law applied a modified version of the 1879 Consular Jurisdiction Act to the colonies, effectively insinuating important elements of the civil-law code of Germany into South-West Africa. 34 It delineated the extent and limits of the Kaiser’s power and the role of colonial

the richness and complexity of the Welsh lawbooks for the study of Welsh medieval women. All of the essays, such as Christopher McAll’s study of the contexts of women’s lives as depicted in the lawbooks, laid the groundwork for future scholars, a groundwork which has yet to be built on. 26 Nevertheless, following on from these approaches, the household of the queen in the Welsh laws was briefly covered by Robin Chapman Stacey in an essay which discussed the king, the edling and the queen in the thirteenth-century law codes in a comparative framework. 27 The

English Church.26 Edward Coke had similarly celebrated custom as a reflection of God’s will, in the Preface to his Third Reports, published the year before Hayward’s tract. Coke argued that beneath the superficial diversity of national law codes there lay an underlying uniformity that must derive from a divine source. For as in nature we see the infinite distinction of things proceed from some unity, as many flowers from one root, many rivers from one fountain … so without question lex orta est cum mente divina, and this admirable unity and consent in such diversity of
