Charter of Liberties.

Cardinal Stephen Langton standing behind the altar in Bury St Edmund's in 1213, pointing to the charter of liberties, the barons of England raising their hands in agreement. The Charter of Liberties was issued by Henry I upon his ascension to the throne in 1100, addressing abuses of royal power, such as over-taxation of the barons, the abuse of vacant sees, and the practices of simony and pluralism. It was generally ignored by monarchs until 1213, when Langton, the Archbishop of Canterbury, reminded the nobles that their liberties had been guaranteed a century before. In the face of such unified opposition King John opened negotiations and the Magna Carta was signed two years later. The quality of the colour printing is particularly good.
