Women in the medieval English countryside : gender and household in Brigstock before the plague by Judith M Bennett( )

23 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 2,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike most histories of European women, which have typically focused on the 19th and 20th century elite, this study reconstructs the public lives of peasant women and men during the six decades before the Black Death of 1348-49. Drawing on the extensive records of the forest manor of Brigstock, Judith Bennett challenges the myth of a "golden age" of equality for medieval men and women. Instead, she ably shows that women faced profound political, legal, economic, and social disadvantages in their dealings with men. These disadvantages stemmed more from women's household status as dependents of
Ale, beer and brewsters in England : women's work in a changing world, 1300-1600 by Judith M Bennett( )

24 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 1,958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women brewed and sold most of the ale drunk in medieval England, but after 1350, men slowly took over the trade. By 1600, most brewers in London - as well as in many towns and villages - were male, not female. Ale, Beer, and Brewsters in England investigates this transition, asking how, when, and why brewing ceased to be a women's trade and became a trade of men." "Drawing on a wide variety of sources - such as literary and artistic materials, court records, accounts, and administrative orders - Judith Bennett vividly describes how brewsters (that is, female brewers) slowly left the trade. She tells a story of commercial growth, gild formation, changing technologies, innovative regulations, and finally, enduring ideas that linked brewsters with drunkenness and disorder." "Examining this instance of seemingly dramatic change in women's status, Bennett argues that it included significant elements of continuity. Women might not have brewed in 1600 as often as they had in 1300, but they still worked predominantly in low-status, low-skilled, and poorly remunerated tasks. Using the experiences of brewsters to rewrite the history of women's work during the rise of capitalism, Ale, Beer, and Brewsters in England offers a telling story of the endurance of patriarchy in a time of dramatic economic change."
History matters : patriarchy and the challenge of feminism by Judith M Bennett( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written for everyone interested in women's and gender history, History Matters reaffirms the importance to feminist theory and activism of long-term historical perspectives. Judith M. Bennett, who has been commenting on developments in women's and gender history since the 1980s, argues that the achievement of a more feminist future relies on a rich, plausible, and well-informed knowledge of the past, and she asks her readers to consider what sorts of feminist history can best advance the struggles of the twenty-first century."--BOOK JACKET

The Oxford handbook of women and gender in medieval Europe by Judith M Bennett( Book )

19 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and Italian and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Oxford Handbook of Women and Gender in Medieval Europe provides a comprehensive overview of the gender rules encountered in Europe in the period between approximately 500 and 1500 C.E. The essays collected in this volume speak to interpretative challenges common to all fields of women's and gender history--that is, how best to uncover the experiences of ordinary people from archives formed mainly by and about elite males, and how to combine social histories of lived experiences with cultural histories of gendered discourses and identities. The collection focuses on Western Europe in the Middle Ages but offers some consideration of medieval Islam and Byzantium, opening these fields for further research. The Handbook is structured into seven sections: Christian, Jewish, and Muslim thought; law in theory and practice; domestic life and material culture; labour, land, and economy; bodies and sexualities; gender and holiness; and the interplay of continuity and change throughout the medieval period. This Handbook contains material from some of the foremost scholars in this field, and will not only serve as the major reference text in the area of medieval and gender studies, but will also provide the agenda for future new research"--Publisher description

Medieval lives : a good marriage( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Series in which Helen Castor explores the fundamental aspects of medieval lives through birth, marriage and death. In the second episode, 'A good marriage' looks at how the church sought to control sexuality through marriage. She talks about the marriage arrangements of Margaret Mautby and John Paston, which were based on securing a good position in society, with love as secondary. However, whilst parents could bring couples together they couldn't force them to marry. In royal marriages, the future of the kingdom was at stake so marriages were arranged by diplomats. An example is given of Richard II who, even when he came to the throne aged 10, was considered highly eligible for a political marriage. Judith Bennett, an expert in medieval village life, considers the lives of ordinary people. With reference to Brigstock in Northamptonshire, she talks about family influence, and courtship. Marriage could be very informal and couples could marry themselves using a set of ritual vows. By the 14th century, this ritual was sanctioned by the Church and ensured that marriage was correctly undertaken. This was considered important in regard to procreation which involved sex which the Church saw as sinful. How the view of illegitimacy changed over the 11th and 12th centuries is illustrated by the position of William the Conqueror and then, 70 years later, the situation when there was no legitimate male heir to inherit the throne. Powerful church reform in the 12th century examined the doctrines and morals of Christian society where behaviour in this life would be judged in the next. Marriage, as a rite of passage, was seen as something that could influence this judgement. David D{u2019}Avray, an expert in the marriage laws of medieval England, discusses how the Church tightened its rules, and how marriage became caught up as a sacrament at a time when the seven sacraments were being defined. The Church disliked the idea of free consent as it left uncertainties as to the validity of a marriage, so in the 13th century it issued statutes on the correct way to establish consent, and began developing rituals that could be solemnised by a priest to form a 'proper' marriage. Helen Castor talks about medieval church weddings with John Harper, Research Professor of Music and Liturgy at Bangor University, including the blessing of the marital bed. Sex and procreation in a godly marriage were encouraged. The public ritual of the 'putting to bed' ceremony of Catherine of Aragon and her first husband, Arthur, is mentioned. For ordinary people the Church had explicit teachings and punishments for those engaging in sex outside marriage. The story of Margery Paston (daughter of Margaret mentoned at the beginning of the programme) and her secret marriage is told. The programme also looks at what happened when married people changed their minds. Helen Castor goes to the Borthwick Institute at York University, to discuss the legal records there with Bronach Kane. Many of their records are to do with marriage litigation, and sex and procreation were the prominent issues that were contested. From the records, the story of Agnes Huntington and her various marriages is looked at. Later, the marriage of William, the medic and surgeon to King Edward IV, and Alice Hobbs is considered, whereby Alice sued him for divorce on the grounds of adultery. The court sided with Alice giving them permission to live apart but in effect they remained married until death. The story of King Henry VIII and his split from the Catholic Church over the annulment of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon is mentioned at the end of the programme
