The Code of Hammurabi
This is an extensive source, so I have provided the following link to a PDF document on the Web.
(Links to an external site.)
Questions for this source:
1 a) In the Code, why does Hammurabi feel justified in setting forth his law code?
2 b) What are some of the penalties? Do they strike you as too harsh to be fair?
3 c) What law amongst these laws stands out for you and why?
Your answer should be about 3-4 paragraphs in length (not 3-4 paragraphs for each question).
