Judicial Tribunals In England And Europe 1200 1700 from the Author: Maureen Mulholland. Now available in paperback for the first time, this book examines trials, civil and criminal, ecclesiastical and secular, in England and Europe between the thirteenth and the seventeenth centuries. Chapters consider the judges and juries and the amateur and professional advisers involved in legal processes as well as the offenders brought before the courts, with the reasons for prosecuting them and the defences they put forward. The cases examined range from a fourteenth century cause-c├ęl├Ębre, the attempted trial of Pope Boniface VIII for heresy, to investigations of obscure people for sexual and religious offences in the city states of Geneva and Venice. Technical terms have been cut to a minimum to ensure accessibility and appeal to lawyers, social, political and legal historians, undergraduate and postgraduates as well as general readers interested in the development of the trial through time.

Acts Of Reading from the Author: Thomas Page Anderson. Acts of Reading examines how John Foxe's Actes and Monuments shaped reading and interpretive practice in the early modern period and addresses the impact of recent electronic editions of Foxe's text on current reading practice and scholarship. The collection draws on history-of-the-book scholarship to make a plea for the centrality of Foxe to any discussion of Renaissance literary history. These essays also productively attend to the relationship between the materiality of books and the conceptual assumptions that govern our engagement with them. The anthology's focus on digital editions of Foxe's Book of Martyrs allows it to explore the often conflicted relationship between modern technologies of book production and reception and the early modern texts transmitted via these technologies. More broadly, Acts of Reading explores how books, and our encounters with them through different media, turn us into who we are. Thomas Anderson is an Assistant Professor of English at Mississippi State University. Ryzn Netzley is an Assistant Professor of English at Southern Illinois University.

Pragmatic Aspects Of Reported Speech from the Author: Matylda Włodarczyk. This book focuses on historical pragmatics. The author presents the use of reported speech in the Early Modern English records of a state trial of the Elizabethan period. It is worthy of note that the few acquitted defendants were more efficient in the application of manipulative reported speech strategies. The results of qualitative and quantitative analyses confirm that reported speech is a marker of <I>stance.
