The Statute of Praemunire (16 Ric 2 c 5) was an Act of the Parliament of England enacted in 1393, during the reign of Richard II. Its intention was to limit the powers of the papacy in England. The word praemunire originally referred to the writ of summons issued against a person accused under this and similar statutes; and later came to mean offences against the statutes.
