Expansion, Full Cites[edit]

I added full citations and switched to sfn, because it makes it easier for me to cite different pages in the same source. I am also planning to remove some of the technical language of the laws from the article and place them in a notes section that is separate from the references, as I think the language is extremely technical and makes the article difficult to read. I think footnotes would be better for this. I have several secondary sources addressing the significance of these laws in medieval society, and I will expand with content from those.
