The Late Medieval Scottish Parliament: Politics and the Three Estates, 1424-1488
Tuckwell, 2001 - 316 էջ
In this study of the medieval parliament, Roland Tanner gives the Scottish Parliament a human face by examining the actions and motives of those who attended. In the past, the Scottish Parliament was seen as a weak and ineffective institution - damned because of its failure to be more like its English counterpart. But Roland Tanner shows that the old picture of weakness is far from accurate. In its very different way, the Scottish Parliament was every bit as powerful as the English institution. The Three Estates (the clergy, nobility and burgh representatives who attended Parliament) were able to wield a surprising degree of control over the Crown during the 15th century.
