Theorizing Legal Personhood in Late Medieval England is a collection of eleven essays that explore what might be distinctly medieval and particularly English about legal personhood vis-à-vis the jurisdictional pluralism of late medieval England.

Spanning the mid-thirteenth to the mid-sixteenth centuries, these essays draw on common law, statute law, canon law and natural law in order to investigate emerging and shifting definitions of personhood at the confluence of legal and literary imaginations, which, in turn, enable them to make real contributions to our understanding of the workings of a specific literary text or to our grasp of the cultural work of legal argument within the histories of ethics, of the self, or of Eurocentrism.
