9781852851675   Product Code: 69045
JH Baker presents an account of the evolution of a distinct tradition and literature of English canon law. The study and teaching of canon law began in England in the 12th century and during the 13th a profession of practising canonists arose. From William Paull and William Bateman in the 14th century to Stephen Lushington and Sir Robert Phillimore in the 19th, Baker assesses the various contributions of individual canonists to this national tradition.
