    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    With some notable exceptions, the subject of outlawry in medieval and early-modern English history has attracted relatively little scholarly attention.

  • Imprisoning Medieval Womenby Gwen Seabourne

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The non-judicial confinement of women is a common event in medieval European literature and hagiography. The literary image of the imprisoned woman, usually a noblewoman, has carried through into the quasi-medieval world of the fairy and folk tale, in which the 'maiden in the tower' is one of the archetypes. Yet the confinement of women outside of... more...

  • Clerical Celibacy in the West: c.1100-1700by Helen Parish

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The debate over clerical celibacy and marriage had its origins in the early Christian centuries, and is still very much alive in the modern church. The content and form of controversy have remained remarkably consistent, but each era has selected and shaped the sources that underpin its narrative, and imbued an ancient issue with an immediacy and relevance.... more...

  • On the Margins of Crusadingby Helen Nicholson

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

  • Ansgar, Rimbert and the Forged Foundations of Hamburg-Bremenby Eric Knibbs

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Ansgar and Rimbert, ninth-century bishops and missionaries to Denmark and Sweden, are fixtures of medieval ecclesiastical history. Rare is the survey that does not pause to mention their work among the pagan peoples of the North and their foundation of an archdiocese centered at Hamburg and Bremen. But Ansgar and Rimbert were also clever forgers who... more...

Yet, despite... more...
