The Magistrate

In the early second century A.D., a conscientious Roman magistrate assumes his duties in the tranquil Bithynian city of Diakropolis, unaware that under its placid surface, a great and ancient evil holds sway over the town and its citizens. Marcellus, the magistrate, soon finds himself at odds with Siros, a powerful merchant and leader of the Order of Croesus, a sinister and secret organization that controls the city's commerce and politics. As Marcellus unwittingly begins to uncover a yet darker and more evil enterprise of the Order-the exploitation and persecution of the local Christian church-he finds himself drawn into the raging conflict between the laws of the empire he is sworn to serve and the faith of the fledgling sect. On a whirlwind ride through treachery, temptation and political intrigue, the magistrate braves calamities of all kinds in a quest for justice and truth, along the way finding unexpected allies among those who bear the curse of the empire. Filled with memorable characters and events, The Magistrate brims with heart-pounding action and thought-provoking messages that will leave a lasting impact on its readers. The adventure concludes in A Worthy Sacrifice, volume three of The Magistrate.

Calvin the Magistrate

The legal and political scenario of Calvin's day involved upheavals deriving from the force of religion upon law. Whole cities, provinces, and states came under Reformation influence, ranging from quiet individual conversions to Protestantism to the hysteria of community iconoclasm. The transformation of these societies, however, was not moving away from a religious worldview; rather, the transformation was a movement of one religion to another. In Calvin's day, secularism, pluralism, and religious toleration were nonexistent. Europe was not in the thrall of the question "Should religion in public life be tolerated?" but rather "Which religion should be enforced, to the banning of all others?" Calvin was a driven man, but a valid question drove him: "What is the true religion?" And deriving from the central question were corollaries: "What law is right law?" and "What government is right government?" Calvin's trek would lead him to answers. Calvin concluded that, substantively, a correct political and legal system derives from the Bible, and procedurally, the system is applied by democratically elected officials, checking and balancing one another--and his views were consistent with a Reformation consensus.

The Magistrate of Gower

department: Justice wants him for a magistrate, in the small central town of Gower. Magistrates administer another set of laws; Natives come under their rule, it is true, but mainly town Natives, city Natives.

The Magistrate of Gower

‘In the end, you could choose to say no more than this: that in the high summer of 1938, in a courtroom in the town of Gower in the Union of South Africa, a case of arson came to an abrupt and irregular end, confounding those who had followed the matter and prompting speculation that approached, but did not quite deliver, scandal ...’ When an illicit affair in British Ceylon comes to light in 1902, seventeen-year-old Boer prisoner-of-war Henry Vos is disgraced. Months before, a short film made his face widely recognisable, but now he is shunned by Boer and Brit alike. Three decades later, Henry is the magistrate of Gower, a small inland town in the Union of South Africa, where he makes friends with young newcomer Adaira van Brugge. Adaira’s story will start to echo Henry’s when she takes a secret lover: Ira Gevint, a Jew who fled Europe only to wind up in a town ready to experiment with its own kind of persecution. As events threaten to unravel the careful life Henry has created for himself, desire surfaces alongside nationalist fervour in Claire Roberston’s arresting new novel about the courage to choose love over fear.

Handbook On The Rules Of Civil Procedure For West Virginia Magistrate Courts

The Rules of Civil Procedure for the Magistrate Courts of West Virginia were promulgated by the Supreme Court on June 22, 1988. This Handbook provides guidance on how those rules should be applied. In addition, this Handbook provides guidance on how to apply legislative procedural statutes that are applicable to magistrate courts. It must be emphasized that this Handbook is only a reference tool, it does not purport to be the “law.” The magistrate court system replaced the justice of the peace courts, pursuant to Article VIII, § 15 of the state constitution, on January 1, 1977. During the long period in which the justice of the peace court system was in place, a rich body of case law was created. Whenever possible this Handbook references to case law decided for justice of the peace courts, as illustrative on how specific issues should be handled by magistrates. In addition, the Handbook provides case law guidance on issues decided under the rules of civil procedure for circuit courts. This Handbook is intended to be user-friendly. In doing so, the material in this Handbook has been arranged under each Rule that is set out in the Rules of Civil Procedure for the Magistrate Courts. To the extent that the Handbook covers procedural matters only found in statutes and other administrative rules promulgated by the Supreme Court, such matters have been set out near closely related Rules.

Our Mutual Friend - explores the conflict between doing what society expects of a person and the idea of being true to oneself The Pickwick Papers - To extend his researches into the quaint and curious phenomena of life, Samuel Pickwick suggests that he and three other "Pickwickians" should make journeys to places remote from London and report on their findings to the other members.

He escapes from there and travels to London, where he meets the Artful Dodger, a member of a gang of juvenile pickpockets led by the elderly criminal, Fagin… A Christmas Carol tells the story of a bitter old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformation after visitations by the ghost of his former business partner and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. David Copperfield is a fatherless boy who is sent to lodge with his housekeeper's family after his mother remarries, but when his mother dies he decides to run away… Hard Times is set in the fictional city of Coketown and it is centered around utilitarian and industrial influences on Victorian society. A Tale of Two Cities depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same period.

Little Dorrit – criticize the institution of debtors' prisons, the shortcomings of both government and society. COLLECTED LETTERS THE LIFE OF CHARLES DICKENS by John Forster

The Architect and the Magistrate

This is a story to which all people, young and old, can relate. We all come from nature and share the earth with all the amazingly beautiful creatures and living things that live on it.

The Architect and the Magistrate

The Architect and the Magistrate is a truly inspirational story about a magical magistrate of nature who offers advice to all who seek him out in their favorite place within nature. The Magistrate shows people - in this case a young boy named Cody McCoy many beautiful ways to communicate with and learn from nature by looking and listening to what the earth has to offer the seeker, which is typically right in front of his or her eyes and ears. Cody requested that the magistrate help him design a house in his favorite meadow and the magistrate obliged by showing Cody how his observation of many creatures, such as a butterflies flight, can inspire him to think of ways in which he can build this house.

This is a story to which all people, young and old, can relate. We all come from nature and share the earth with all the amazingly beautiful creatures and living things that live on it. The magistrate simply points out the obvious that we all are able to see and hear if we just slow down and listen to what nature has to offer us (which is usually right before our eyes).
