Harold Berman's masterwork narrates the interaction of evolution and revolution in the development of Western law.

This volume explores two successive transformations of the Western legal tradition under the impact of the sixteenth-century German Reformation and the seventeenth-century English Revolution, with particular emphasis on Lutheran and Calvinist influences.

Berman examines the far-reaching consequences of these apocalyptic political and social upheavals on the systems of legal philosophy, legal science, criminal law, civil and eocnomic law, and social law in Germany and England and throughout Europe as a whole.
