Quote-marks Someone just sent me a package from California, a full teaching pack on Human Rights and bringing them to life. page 14 has a section on Magna Carta(1215) The Great Charter was arguably the most significant early influence on the extensive historical process that led to the rule of constitutional law today in the English speaking world. In 1215, after King John of England violated a number of ancient laws and customs by which England had been governed, his subjects forced him to sign the Magna Charter, which enumerates what later came to be thought of as human rights.Among them was the right of the church to be free from governmental interference, the rights of all free citizens to own and inherit property and to be protected from excessive taxes.... it also contains provisions forbidding bribary and official misconduct.
