As the jury system developed itself in both civil and criminal matters the sphere of the duel became more limited, in practice if not in theory, and its evils being thus less felt the necessity for its formal abrogation was less pressing.[801] It was thus enabled to hold its place as a recognized form of procedure to a later period than in any other civilized land.
