In thirteenth century England the practice arose of summoning to parliament not only the bishops, abbots, earls and barons but also the representatives of the shires and towns. The question posed by this development was first stated by Maitland: was parliament the child of authoritv or of rebellion?

Dr. Pasquets essay, along with the work of Ludwig Riess, Gneist and Professor McIlwain, is one of the formative influences in present-day thinking on the subject. The English translation of Dr. Pasquet's Essay by Dr. Laffan is here reprinted in its entirety together with a Preface and additional notes by Gaillard Lapsley.
