Historical Laws and Security
In a brief description, here you will find the following laws in which they were
originated. Civilizations throughout time have found it necessary to establish a set of laws
dependent on their society's religious beliefs, social structure, setting, and other variables. Magna
Carta (Latin for Great Charter, literally "Great Paper"), also called Magna CartaLibertatum
(Great Charter of Freedoms), is an English legal charter, originally issued in the year 1215. It
was written in Latin. Magna Carta required King John of England to proclaim certain rights
(pertaining to nobles and barons), respect certain legal procedures, and accept that his will could
be bound by the law. It explicitly protected certain rights of the King's subjects, whether free or
fettered most notably the writ of habeas corpus, allowing appeal against unlawful imprisonment
that led to the rule of constitutional law today in the English speaking world.
The earliest legal system known in its entirety is the Code of Hammurabi which was established
in ancient Babylonia nearly 4000 years ago. The Code of Hammurabi was compiled by King
Hammurabi himself. Hammurabi was the most notable ruler of the first Babylonian dynasty, and
unified Mesopotamia under one central government. Hammurabi's life is unknown, it is
predicted that he established his reign around 1792-1750 B.C., thus dating the Code to
approximately this period.
Draco was a legislator in Athens who was authorized by the Alcmaeonidae to write the law
codes around 621 B.C. It marked the first time the laws in Athens were set down in writing and
they were lauded for their impartiality. Although impartial, according to Aristotle, the newly-
recorded laws were so harsh they were written in blood instead of ink. Under Draco's codes,
even the most trivial of criminal offenses (i.e. stealing an apple) were penalized by death.
