Buried within its 69 clauses is one of immeasurable importance. This is the idea that no one should be deprived of their freedom without just cause, and that people are entitled to fair trial by their peers according to the law of the land. At the time Magna Carta did nothing to improve the lot of the vast majority of English people, and all but three of its provisions have been repealed. Yet Magna Carta has come to be seen as the cornerstone of English liberty and an international rallying cry against the arbitrary use of power. It was invoked by opponents of Charles I’s overbearing rule in the 17th century and embodied in the 1791 Bill of Rights in America, where it is still held to have special constitutional status. Where does Magna Carta stand today? In a time of secret courts in Britain and the Guantanamo gulag, the threat to rights from terror laws and state surveillance of our online activities, do we need to reaffirm its basic principles? Should we take things even further, as Tim Berners-Lee has suggested, and create a new Magna Carta for the worldwide web to protect our liberty online?

From the British Library(link below) Magna Carta, meaning ‘The Great Charter’, is one of the most famous documents in the world. Originally issued by King John of England (r.1199-1216) as a practical solution to the political crisis he faced in 1215, Magna Carta established for the first time the principle that everybody, including the king, was subject to the law. Although nearly a third of the text was deleted or substantially rewritten within ten years, and almost all the clauses have been repealed in modern times, Magna Carta remains a cornerstone of the British constitution. Most of the 63 clauses granted by King John dealt with specific grievances relating to his rule. However, buried within them were a number of fundamental values that both challenged the autocracy of the king and proved highly adaptable in future centuries. Most famously, the 39th clause gave all ‘free men’ the right to justice and a fair trial. Some of Magna Carta’s core principles are echoed in the United States Bill of Rights (1791) and in many other constitutional documents around the world, as well as in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) and the European Convention on Human Rights (1950). - See more at: http://www.bl.uk/magna-carta/articles/magna-carta-an-introduction#sthash.rTG3cmMY.dpuf more information http://www.bl.uk/magna-carta/articles/magna-carta-an-introduction

PowerPoint available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This video teaches students the importance of the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact, the English Bill of Rights and Thomas Paine's Common Sense in influencing the Founding Fathers in creating the US Government. The Magna Carta first demonstrated to Europeans and later Americans that power was not unlimited and the rule of law could be applied to those in power. The Mayflower Compact established the tradition of self-rule in the Colonies and established the first social contract on US soil. The English Bill of Rights provided an inspiration not just for the U.S. Bill of Rights but that protecting rights was a job for the government. Thomas Paine's Common Sense was an inspiration for the Declaration of Independence and greatly led to calls for Americans to establish a government based on republican principles. All of these documents again inspired the founding fathers when creating the U.S. government and a Constitution that would embody these principles. Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. The Magna Carta is considered the first constitutional document that produced the principle of "limited government" and the beginning of the end of "absolutism." This concept especially resonated with the Enlightenment ideals of the founding fathers in the quest for inspiration in creating the federal government of the United States. The Mayflower Compact established the tradition of self-government from the earliest settlement of the United States. This document also started a tradition of the "social compact" or social-contract that still exists in the United States. It also confirms the establishment of popular sovereignty in America. The English Bill of Rights was of course an influence to the Founding Fathers as they created the US Bill of Rights. Many of the rights and protections of central power listed in the English Bill of Rights following the Glorious Revolution of England in 1689 found the way into the US Bill of Rights including protections from "cruel and unusual punishment," the right to a jury, "free speech," and others. Thomas Paine's Common Sense was one of America's first best-sellers and a huge inspiration to Patriots demands of declaring independence from Great Britain. Widely read in 1776 in colonial America this pamphlet went a long way to convincing reluctant future Americans that the time was right for The Declaration of Independence. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam.

I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class. ***For noncommercial, educational, and archival purposes under Law of Fair Use as provided in section 107 of the US copyright law.

Hello guys! I made for you new video. This video is about history. Exactly about Magna carta libertatum. Richard, the Lionheart Richard, the Lionheart, King of England had spent much of his reign outside England fighting wars in the Middle East and France. To pay for these he had taxed the English heavily. In 1199, Richard died and his brother, John became king. John continued to fight wars in France but he kept losing battles. He needed more money so his government in England ruthlessly demanded more taxes from the nobility who were expected to pay tax if the King asked. The Barons became very unhappy about John exploiting their loyalty and belief in his complete power. They rebelled and took over London and forced John to negotiate. Magna Carta On the 19 June 1215 at Runnymede King John signed the Magna Carta. (This means Great Charter.) It was the first formal document stating that a King had to follow the laws of the land and it guaranteed the rights of individuals against the wishes of the King. This meant people couldn't be arrested, imprisoned of have their possessions taken away except by the judgement of his equals and/or the law of the land. This laid the way for trial by jury which means people are tried by their peers and guaranteed the civil rights of the individual. The Magna Carta established the principle that the people of England, at this stage represented by the Barons, could limit the power of a King, if he was doing things that were not good for the country Follow me on: Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/Mamadreams-1934232769942619/ Twitter:https://twitter.com/Mamadreams_YT Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tere_zka_/

This Monday marks the 800th anniversary of the creation of the Magna Carta, a foundational document in western civilization. Follow Leah Becerra: http://www.twitter.com/LeahBecerra See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: This is the Magna Carta, one of the most influential documents in western civilization and often cited as the foundation for our understanding of civil liberties. And June 15, this document turns 800 years old. "What started out as a document of specific complaints from a group of barons has turned into an international symbol of liberty, without which we might not have the rights we value so much today," said Monty Python's Terry Jones for The British Library. The name Magna Carta means Great Charter in Latin. At first, that was just a reference to its length, but over the past eight centuries, it has also come to stand for the significance of the document. There are only four copies of the original document left — and all four of them were brought together earlier this year to mark the 800th anniversary of the charter's sealing. And the document's actual text has been more or less phased out of English law. There's only three provisions from the Magna Carta still on the books: the freedom of the Church of England, the rights of London and — most significantly — the right to be judged according to the "law of the land," not the caprice of a monarch. Much of the Magna Carta deals with archaic concerns, like fishing traps on the River Thames. But when the tyrannical King John of England reluctantly signed it in 1215, it created the basis for limiting royal authority under common law. (Video via BBC) That was a powerful concept at the time. As Dan Hannan, a British member of European Parliament, wrote in The Wall Street Journal, "Above the king brooded something more powerful yet—something you couldn’t see or hear or touch or taste but that bound the sovereign as surely as it bound the poorest wretch in the kingdom." The ideals laid out in 1215 can be found in documents from the U.S.' Declaration of Independence and Constitution to the United Nations' International Declaration of Human Rights. The document's principles stretched across the world along with the British empire and persisted in colonized countries long after they declared independence. Figures like Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela referenced the Magna Carta while championing their causes. Today, its influence might be more popularly known thanks to Jay Z. But for anyone who believes our leaders aren't above the law of the land, you've got the Magna Carta to thank for that.

Magna Carta – the Great Charter – is one of the foundational documents in Anglo-American legal history. Ironically, it began, not as a statement of principle, like our Declaration of Independence, but as a peace treaty. Signed on June 15, 1215, in a field at Runnymede, England, Magna Carta sought to end the barons’ rebellion against King John by forcing the crown to adhere to the laws and customs of the realm. Magna Carta was initially thought to be a failure because King John repudiated the treaty almost before the ink was dry. But time has been good to the Great Charter. In fact, it is difficult to overstate the importance of Magna Carta in the development of Anglo-American law. English law treats it as “the Bible of the English Constitution.”

Antonia Fraser From the New York Times bestselling author of The Plantagenets, a lively, action-packed history of how the Magna Carta came to be. The Magna Carta is revered around the world as the founding document of Western liberty. Its principles even its language can be found in our Bill of Rights and in the Constitution. But what was this strange document and how did it gain such legendary status?Dan Jones takes us back to the turbulent year of 1215, when, beset by foreign crises and cornered by a growing domestic rebellion, King John reluctantly agreed to fix his seal to a document that would change the course of history. At the time of its creation the Magna Carta was just a peace treaty drafted by a group of rebel barons who were tired of the king's high taxes, arbitrary justice, and endless foreign wars. The fragile peace it established would last only two months, but its principles have reverberated over the centuries. Jones's riveting narrative follows the story of the Magna Carta's creation, its failure, and the war that subsequently engulfed England, and charts the high points in its unexpected afterlife. Reissued by King John's successors it protected the Church, banned unlawful imprisonment, and set limits to the exercise of royal power. It established the principle that taxation must be tied to representation and paved the way for the creation of Parliament. In 1776 American patriots, inspired by that long-ago defiance, dared to pick up arms against another English king and to demand even more far-reaching rights. We think of the Declaration of Independence as our founding document but those who drafted it had their eye on the Magna Carta. From the Hardcover edition. Contact: [email protected]

Britain is this month celebrating the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, a document more than three times as old as the United States that established many principles of Western democracy. But what exactly is this historic charter, how did it come into being, and why is it so important to modern life in America? ? Magna Carta — meaning "Great Charter" in Latin — paved the road to modern democracy, granting every citizen individual freedoms and laying the foundation for constitutional rights and parliament. The charter was the first document declaring that the king or queen had to abide by the laws of the land. Due process was defined in Magna Carta to prevent King John from prosecuting people unless they had broken laws. http://feeds.nbcnews.com/c/35002/f/663303/s/473a8ac7/sc/7/l/0L0Snbcnews0N0Cnews0Cworld0Cmagna0Ecarta0Eeverything0Eyou0Eneed0Eknow0Eabout0E80A0A0Eyear0Eold0En374246/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Migration presents major global challenges. How should the principles of Magna Carta inform our understanding and practice? This is part of the University of Auckland’s week long public lecture series for the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. Grant Bayldon has been head of Amnesty International Aotearoa NZ since 2012. “Many people ask me if I find working for Amnesty International distressing, seeing day after day just how appallingly some governments and people treat their fellow humans. Of course the answer is yes – but it’s also the most inspiring work I’ve ever done. Because every day I also see the incredible courage that people are capable of in the face of terrible abuses.” Mr Bayldon has previously worked for Oxfam New Zealand as Marketing Director, then Operations Director & Deputy Executive Director and is the former CEO of trans-Tasman law firm Duncan Cotterill. Grant regularly appears on TV, radio and in print to bring a human rights perspective to major issues. Michael White is a senior legal and policy analyst at the Human Rights Commission in Wellington. He is involved in intervening in cases before the higher courts, advising on government legislation and more generally New Zealand's obligations at international law. He has practiced in a private law firm, as a government lawyer and as an advisor to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. Michael has a particular interest in public and constitutional law: including compliance with the Human Rights Act 199 and the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990; and the practical interplay between domestic law and international obligations.

Magna Carta - King John of England - FULL Audio Book Recording - History Magna Carta, also called Magna Carta Libertatum or The Great Charter of the Liberties of England, is an Angevin charter, originally issued in Latin in the year 1215, translated into vernacular-French as early as 1219, and reissued later in the 13th century in modified versions. Magna Carta is Latin for Great Charter. The later versions excluded the most direct challenges to the monarch's authority that had been present in the 1215 charter. The charter first passed into law in 1225; the 1297 version, with the long title (originally in Latin) "The Great Charter of the Liberties of England, and of the Liberties of the Forest," still remains on the statute books of England and Wales. The 1215 charter required King John of England to proclaim certain liberties and accept that his will was not arbitrary—for example by explicitly accepting that no "freeman" (in the sense of non-serf) could be punished except through the law of the land, a right that still exists. Magna Carta was the first document forced onto a King of England by a group of his subjects, the feudal barons, in an attempt to limit his powers by law and protect their privileges. It was preceded and directly influenced by the Charter of Liberties in 1100, in which King Henry I had specified particular areas wherein his powers would be limited. Despite its recognised importance, by the second half of the 19th century nearly all of its clauses had been repealed in their original form. Three clauses currently remain part of the law of England and Wales, however, and it is generally considered part of the uncodified constitution. Lord Denning described it as "the greatest constitutional document of all times -- the foundation of the freedom of the individual against the arbitrary authority of the despot". In a 2005 speech, Lord Woolf described it as "first of a series of instruments that now are recognised as having a special constitutional status", the others being the Habeas Corpus Act (1679), the Petition of Right (1628), the Bill of Rights (1689), and the Act of Settlement (1701). The charter was an important part of the extensive historical process that led to the rule of constitutional law in the English speaking world. Magna Carta was important in the colonization of American colonies as England's legal system was used as a model for many of the colonies as they were developing their own legal systems. It was Magna Carta, over other early concessions by the monarch, which survived to become a "sacred text". In practice, Magna Carta in the medieval period did not generally limit the power of kings, but by the time of the English Civil War it had become an important symbol for those who wished to show that the King was bound by the law. It influenced the early settlers in New England and inspired later constitutional documents, including the United States Constitution. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Magna Carta guaranteed noble widows freedom from forced remarriage. 800 years later, there are still women around the world who do not enjoy freedom of choice regarding marriage. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that a woman's right to choose a spouse and enter freely into marriage is central to her life and dignity, and equality as a human being. This right has been continually reaffirmed by the United Nations since the Declaration was adopted, demonstrating that centuries after Magna Carta, forced marriage remains a human rights issue in many parts of the world. In 2013, the first United Nations Human Rights Council adopted a resolution against forced marriage, affirming the same principle expressed in Magna Carta centuries before.

Eight hundred years ago, England's nobles allied against the rapacious King John to restrain his excessive taxation and irresponsible attempts at foreign conquest. The alliance prepared a list of rules that John had to follow to regain their allegiance and maintain his throne. The "Great Charter" was the first significant step in a centuries-long odyssey toward the ideal of limited government. This talk discusses Magna Carta's catalytic role in the history of constitutions and liberty.

Magna Carta's 800th Anniversary Two days of national celebrations are under way to commemorate Magna Carta - the failed treaty between a tyrannical king and his rebellious barons which turned into a decisive moment for English democracy and justice. Also known as the Great Charter, it was agreed in June 1215, but within weeks it was torn up and the country was plunged into civil war. Despite this, many of the principles in the charter survived and became law - with the language adopted in democracies around the world. Today, a statue of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth will be unveiled on the site of the treaty negotiations at Runnymede on the banks of the River Thames. And tomorrow, the Queen, members of her family and the Prime Minister will attend an event on the site. Her predecessor, King John, is regarded as one of Britain's worst monarchs, and it was his dispute with the landowning aristocracy which formed the background to the creation of Magna Carta. The barons forced him to accept new laws and a limitation on his power. There are four copies of the charter still in existence - one each in Lincoln and Salisbury Cathedrals, and two in the British Library. Those who negotiated the treaty would be astonished at how its reputation has survived eight centuries, because it was annulled after only 10 weeks. The Pope ruled that King John had been forced to sign it under duress. Yet in the years afterwards, the language in the charter was revised and reintroduced and became part of the cornerstone of English law. "If the barons looked at how we were celebrating it they'd be quite amused," says human rights barrister John Cooper QC. He equates Magna Carta to scoring an early goal in a football match. It wasn't decisive, but it shaped what followed. And he argues that some of the rights envisaged by the charter, such as trial by jury, are under threat.

Panel discussion: How the Magna Carta Gave Birth to Representative Government, a Parliamentary System and Liberty of the Individual
Views: 170 American Freedom Alliance
Magna Carta, English Great Charter, the charter of English liberties granted by King John in 1215 under threat of civil war and reissued with alterations in 1216, 1217, and 1225. The charter meant less to contemporaries than it has to subsequent generations. The solemn circumstances of its first granting have given to Magna Carta of 1215 a unique place in popular imagination; quite early in its history it became a symbol and a battle cry against oppression, each successive generation reading into it a protection of its own threatened liberties. In England thePetition of Right (1628) and the Habeas Corpus Act (1679) looked directly back to clause 39 of the charter of 1215, which stated that "no free man shall be...imprisoned or disseised [dispossessed]...except by the lawful judgment of his peers or by the law of the land." In the United States both the national and the state constitutions show ideas and even phrases directly traceable to Magna Carta. Earlier kings of England—Henry I, Stephen, and Henry II—had issued charters, making promises or concessions to their barons. But these were granted by, not exacted from, the king and were very generally phrased. Moreover, the steady growth of the administration during the 12th century weakened the barons' position vis-à-vis the crown. But the need for heavy taxation for the Third Crusade, and for the ransom of Richard I after his capture by the Holy Roman emperor Henry VI, increased his successor's difficulties. John's position was further weakened by a rival claim to the throne and the French attack upon John's Duchy of Normandy. In 1199, 1201, and 1205 John's barons had to be promised their "rights"; his financial exactions increased after his loss of Normandy (1204), and, during his quarrel (1208--13) with Pope Innocent III, he taxed the English church heavily. It is, therefore, not surprising that after 1213 Stephen Langton, archbishop of Canterbury, directed baronial unrest into a demand for a solemn grant of liberties by the king. The document known as the Articles of the Barons was at last agreed upon and sealed by John on June 15, 1215, atRunnymede (beside the River Thames, between Windsor and Staines, now in the county of Surrey). During the next several days the document went through further modifications and refinements, and the final version of Magna Carta was accepted by the king and the barons on June 19. Although written in stages, the charter has been traditionally discussed as consisting of a preamble and 63 clauses. Roughly, its contents may be divided into nine groups. The first concerned the church, asserting that it was to be "free." A second group provided statements of feudal law of particular concern to those holding lands directly from the crown, and the third assured similar rights to subtenants. A fourth group of clauses referred to towns, trade, and merchants. A particularly large group was concerned with the reform of the law and of justice, and another with control of the behaviour of royal officials. A seventh group concerned the royal forests, and another dealt with immediate issues, requiring, for instance, the dismissal of John's foreign mercenaries. The final clauses provided a form of security for the king's adherence to the charter, by which a council of 25 barons should have the ultimate right to levy war upon him should he seriously infringe it. Councillors for John's young son Henry III reissued the charter in 1216 and 1217, omitting all matters relating only to the political situation of 1215. In 1217 clauses relating to the forests were transferred to a separate forest charter. The great reissue of 1225, given by Henry III himself after his coming of age, differed little from that of 1217, and it was probably already realized that efforts to keep the charter up to date were impracticable. Thus the charter of 1225, again reissued by Henry III in 1264 and "inspected" and enrolled on his new statute rolls by Edward I in 1297, gradually became less a statement of current law than a sourcebook of basic principles. There are four extant "originals" of the charter of 1215, one each in Lincoln Cathedral and Salisbury Cathedral and two in the British Museum. Durham Cathedral possesses the charters of 1216, 1217, and 1225.
