The fourth volume in Fell's eight-volume work, this study focuses on ancient, medieval, and early modern Europe. Fell charts the overall patterns of historiographical "debates" in modern discussion on the origins of legislation, public law, sovereignty, and the state, covering both historical periods and geographical aspects of the topic. Countries examined include Italy, France, England, Germany, Spain, and the Netherlands, while theories that attribute the origins of the state to specific time periods are also explored. The work concludes with supplemental bibliographical essays that cover all four volumes.

Crusading Peace

Tomaz Mastnak's provocative analysis of the roots of peacemaking in the Western world elucidates struggles for peace that took place in the high and late Middle Ages. Mastnak traces the ways that eleventh-century peace movements, seeking to end violence among Christians, shaped not only power structures within Christendom but also the relationship of the Western Christian world to the world outside. The unification of Christian society under the banner of "holy peace" precipitated a fundamental division between the Christian and non-Christian worlds, and the postulated peace among Christians led to holy war against non-Christians.

The long-accepted standard view is that the gradual polarization of Court and Parliament during the reigns of James I and Charles I reflected the split between absolutists (who upheld the divine right of the monarchy to rule) and constitutionalists (who resisted tyranny by insisting the monarch was subject to law) and resulted inevitably in civil war.
