The history and contents of the Magna Carta (1215) and theBulla Aurea (1222) are remarkably similar, so much so thatthe latter document is often called the "Magna Carta ofHungary". These similarities are remarkable given thedifferences between the nobility of England and the HolyRoman Empire. In this fascinating study Hantos tracesHungary's constitutional development during the thirteenthand fourteenth centuries. Turning to the laws andinstitutions they engendered, Hantos considers exampleswhere developments were similar or divergent. This studywill interest students of medieval law, comparative law andconstitutional history.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
