Middle ages is regarded as a disputive time on western law history. The time, during A.D.500 to A.D.1500, is always considered as a stagnant status in human's development, so that in many scholars' opinions, it is "the dark middle ages." We can't deny that superstition, poverty, obscuration, graness all exist in middle ages, but can we absolutely deny the culture heritages during that time? Everyone, who have studied on middle ages history, will discover that a new system was brought out in middle ages. It was called the city system, which had important impact on economic, political, culture areas. Based on that, feudal society began to disorganize, capitalism appeared, and judicial principles in modern ages were founded. Why did the city system appear in middle ages? Why it brought so huge concatenate responses? What judicial principles did city systems connotate? This is the topic of the article.Surround with city judicial principles of middle ages, the article consists five parts. Firstly, it introduces city systems and city laws of middle ages. Next, based on the theories commented above, the article discusses three important judicial pinciples which are rationalism, judicial autonomism and judicial nomoracy. Finally, the article tries to draw a conclusion that the city system of middle ages has fatal influences on temporal European society and judicial systems of European modern ages. The article choose a smaller thesis as the beginning topic, and comment on the disputive history—the city sytsem particularly and thoroughly. To some extent, the article containstheoretic and practical meanings.
