Pressestimmen

A fine example of how a new generation of historians are approaching the field of legal history... what is really new here is the ways in which all of the authors approach the history of the law: they use some decidedly non-legal texts to examine legal history; they bring together historical and literary sources; and they debunk the view that medieval laws had little to say about women or that medieval women had little legal agency. ALBION (US)Its wide-ranging and inter-disciplinary approach to source material throws new light on medieval women living their lives within the framework of the law and legal attitudes. RICARDIAN
