This excerpt reflects that (c.) the document provides protections for English citizens but does not provide equal protections.
Magna Carta was a document issued in the 13th century and it established that everyone, even the monarch, was subject to the law. It was mainly designed to solve the problems that had arisen between the King and the rebel barons. This excerpt shows that, although the document protects the English citizen that commits an offence, it does not offer the same protection that it offers to the man that belongs the highest class since it establishes that, unlike ordinary citizens, earls and barons can only be judged by people that belong to their same social class. The reason why the document offers unequal protection is because Magna Carta had been designed by the barons to ensure that their own rights were protected.
