  • Envisioning Experience in Late Antiquity and the Middle Agesby Giselle de Nie; Thomas F.X. Noble

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Our imagination reveals our experience of ourselves and our world. The late philosopher of science and poetry Gaston Bachelard introduced the notion that each image that comes to mind spontaneously is a visual representation of the cognitive and affective pattern that is moving us at the time - often unconsciously. When such a mental image inspires... more...

  • Marino Sanudo Torsello, The Book of the Secrets of the Faithful of the Crossby Peter Lock

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    This is the first full translation of Marino Sanudo Torsello's Secreta fidelium Crucis to be made into English. The work itself is a piece of crusading propaganda following the fall of Acre in 1291, written between 1300 and 1321, but it includes much of historical relevance along with interesting observations on the early history of Jerusalem and... more...

  • Manure Mattersby Richard Jones

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In pre-industrial societies, in which the majority of the population lived directly off the land, few issues were more important than the maintenance of soil fertility. Without access to biodegradable wastes from production processes or to synthetic agrochemicals, early farmers continuously developed strategies aimed at adding nutritional value to... more...

  • Outlaws in Medieval and Early Modern Englandby John C. Appleby; Paul Dalton

    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. This volume helps to address this significant gap in scholarship, and encourage further study of the subject, by presenting a series of new studies, based on original research, that address significant... more...

  • 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...
