Encyclopedia of terms for students of mediaeval legal history

This online encyclopaedia of terms for students of medieval history is organised on 3 levels:

Level 1: a dictionary providing short definitions of legal terms that may be encountered by those looking into mediaeval law. Brevity necessarily requires generalisation and exclusion of some uses.

Level 2: rather longer definitions of some of the terms treated at Level 1, allowing greater nuance.

Level 3: conversations focusing on a limited number of the terms, looked at to provide the basis for discussion of aspects of mediaeval law.
