Law, laity, and solidarities : essays in honour of Susan Reynolds ( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The primary focus of this collection by leading medieval historians is the laity, in particular the ideas and ideals of lay people. The contributors explore lay attitudes as expressed in legal cases, charters, chronicles and collective activities, and they question straightforward narratives of the Middle Ages, as a period of progress from irrational to rational, from primitive to complex and sophisticated or as a time of lay action and clerical thought. They highlight the centrality of kinship, whilst stressing its limitations as an all purpose social bond. The essays range chronologically and geographically from the seventh century to the eve of the Reformation, from Western Britain to papal and urban Italy, from Carolingian dynastic politics to the decline of medieval pilgrimage in the sixteenth century, and from the courts of twelfth-century France to the fifteenth-century wards of London

Courts, elites, and gendered power in the early Middle Ages : Charlemagne and others by Janet L Nelson ( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A major theme in the present volume of articles by Janet Nelson is the usefulness of gender as a category of historical analysis. Some papers range more widely across early medieval time and geographical as well as social space, but most focus on the Carolingian period and on royalty and elites. The workings of dynastic political power are viewed in social as well as political context, and the author explores the realities of gendered power, which while constraining women, gave them distinctive possibilities for agency. These papers offer new perspectives on the Carolingian world in general and on Charlemagne's reign in particular
