What’s Really in the Magna Carta?

Lecture no. 3 from the course: Years that Changed History: 1215

What’s Really in the Magna Carta?

Taught by Professor Dorsey Armstrong | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Continue your study of the Magna Carta by investigating some of its most interesting clauses. As you learned in the previous lecture, the document was meant to appease a group of nobles, and the negotiated settlement is a delightful mix of grand pronouncements and specific requests—including that widows shall not be compelled to remarry.
