Analyses the development of a new mode of state in the Middle Ages in Europe. This was the emergence of an interactive state, signified by a regulated intercourse between state and society. This was a state built on pluralism, power sharing and constitutionalism. Certain institutional and societal conditions contributed to this development, which laid the ground for the so‐called ‘European miracle’.

Keywords:   constitutionalism, Europe, European miracle, interactive state, Middle Ages, pluralism, power sharing, state–society intercourse
