Host: The Heritage Foundation. In the second of the Portrait of Liberty Lecture Series, Professor Campbell will examine the traditions of liberty and limited government which were nurtured in a Christian culture that predated the Magna Carta of 1215. The most important rallying cry of the rule of law throughout the centuries was restoration of the laws of Edward the Confessor. The tradition of liberty gained strength in the 17th century when Sir Edward Coke through his writings and actions opposed the tyrannical actions of the Stuart Kings. Professor Campbell will reflect on these issues, as well as the Glorious Revolution of 1688, with graphic portrayals of the principal figures and places involved, knit together with an appropriate piece of music.
