The axe and the oath : ordinary life in the Middle Ages by Robert Fossier( Book )

50 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 2,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the author, a medieval historian presents a compelling picture of daily life in the Middle Ages as it was experienced by ordinary people. He describes how these vulnerable people confronted life, from birth to death, including childhood, marriage, work, sex, food, illness, religion, and the natural world. While most histories of the period focus on the ideas and actions of the few who wielded power and stress how different medieval people were from us, he concentrates on the other nine-tenths of humanity in the period and concludes that "medieval man is us." Drawing on a broad range of evidence, he describes how medieval men and women encountered, coped with, and understood the basic material facts of their lives. We learn how people related to agriculture, animals, the weather, the forest, and the sea; how they used alcohol and drugs; their medical knowledge; and how they buried their dead. But it is about much more than simply the material demands of life. We also learn how ordinary people experienced the social, cultural, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of medieval life, from memory and imagination to writing and the Church. The result is a new vision of the Middle Ages

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a history of peasant society in Europe from around 900 to the mid-fourteenth century. Robert Fossier, one of Europe's leading historians of the subject, provides a vivid and detailed picture of the daily life of the peasants, discussing, for example, the food they cultivated and ate, the houses and villages in which they lived, their taboos and customs. In particular, he considers the peasants' relationship to the rural landscape, which they grazed and tilled, and to their lords, who controlled the land. He describes the critical role women played in the medieval economy and society. Professor Fossier focuses, to, on the peasant as an individual within the rural community, exploring changes in their legal and economic status, family relationships and structures, and inheritance customs
