==Influences of Magna Carta throughout oncoming centuries==
Magna Carta has made a long journey through time, spreading over the globe by virtue of its implications and legacy. More than 800 years later its simply laid out ideas of freedom and justice have become integral and inseparable part of the very genetic structure of the mankind. <ref>Magna Carta Today - To no one deny or delay right or justice: http://magnacarta800th.com/magna-carta-today/</ref>For about a century after it was initially signed, the king and the nobles tussled over the provisions of the Magna Carta, and it was periodically revised, altered, enriched and updated. For instance, it was the 1225 version – much shorter than the original one – that was confirmed officially by the new King Edward I and found its way and expression through the first directly elected Parliament in 1264 and the first Statute Roll in 1297. The spirit of Magna Carta evoked during the famous Putney debates of 1647.
Later, with Charles II restoration, Magna Carta acted as a solid base and helped to codify the ancient writ of Habeas Corpus<ref>Latin for “you [shall] have the body”, it is a legal action or writ by means of which detainees can seek relief from unlawful imprisonment. In modern US Law it is a recourse in law whereby a person can report an unlawful detention or imprisonment before a court, usually through a prison official. A writ of habeas corpus, is known as the “the great and efficacious writ in all manner of illegal confinement”, being a remedy available to the meanest against the mightiest: http://www.lectlaw.com/def/h001.htm</ref> passed by Parliament in 1679. Along with that most of the 1297 statute was repealed by Parliament at various times between 1828 and 1969.<ref>Magna Carta in the modern age: http://www.bl.uk/magna-carta/articles/magna-carta-in-the-modern-age</ref>
