Legend has it the Wat Tyler rebellion, which very nearly toppled the Plantagenets, started over a farmer's wife being strip-searched. So...again, your precious "Classical" and "Enlightenment" principles allow this kind of thing, feudal societies never got away with them. Most of the Bill of Rights, though expressed in Classicist terms, were actually just medieval Common Law rights—those enjoyed by all freemen in the era of "fiefdoms".
