Antonin Scalia's revolutionary impact on constitutional law rested on his jurisprudence of originalism, seeking to base constitutional interpretation on the document's original meaning.

He also employed originalism to slow the march of the New Deal constitutional revolution that undermined the Constitution's requirements of limited government.
