Magna Carta: Law, Liberty, Legacy | What's on | The British Library - The British Library



Foundation of democracy or rallying cry for modern rights? One of the world’s most famous documents, Magna Carta has inspired some of today’s fundamental liberties. Yet it started as a practical solution to a political crisis 800 years ago.


Since 1215, Magna Carta has evolved from a political agreement to an
international symbol of freedom. Uncover the story of how its power has
been used – and abused – from its genesis through to today’s popular
culture, in the largest exhibition ever staged about this world-famous
document.


Explore centuries of dramatic history, from King John, medieval
battles, revolution, wars, empire and the struggle for the right to
vote, right up to today’s satirical commentaries.
