Several different approaches to medieval legal history are evident in these articles. The first group uses law to investigate the principles that governed society, whether clearly articulated or not, and to ask how the intellectual structures of the ius commune affected the institutions of government and the presuppositions of the people. The second group of articles illustrates the importance of returning to the manuscript sources of later medieval texts, rather than relying on the early printed editions. In both parts Professor Pennington also focuses on the lives of individual jurists, contending that these provide a key to the understanding of their thought, their position in society, and the connections between the two. One of these articles is published for the first time here, while a number of others have been revised and up-dated for publication. Plusieures approches différentes à l'histoire légale du Moyen Age sont reflétées au travers de ces articles. Le premier groupe se sert de la loi pour explorer les principes qui gouvernaient la société - que ceux-ci soient clairement exprimés ou non - et afin de demander comment les structures intellectuelles de l'ius commune affectaient les institutions gouvernementales et les présuppositions du peuple. Le second groupe illustre l'importance du retour aux sources manuscrites des textes médiévaux tardifs, plutôt que de se fier à des impressions anciennes. Au travers des deux parties du volume, le professeur Pennington se concentre aussi sur la vie de certains juristes, avançant qu'il s'agit là d'une des clefs permettant de comprendre leur pensée, leur place dans la société et le rapport entre ces deux facteurs. Un des articles est publié ici pour la première fois, alors qu'un certain nombre d'autres ont été révisés et mis à jour pour leur réimpression.
