Synopsis

A Medieval Miscellany by Margaret Wade Labarge

This collection of occasional writings considers an eclectic mix of themes and issues in the history of the Middle Ages. The varied lives of medieval women, their power and status within society, are depicted through their own writings; questions of medieval culture are linked to those facing humanity in our time; travel, as experienced by the most prestigious ambassador and by the lowliest pilgrim, is explored; and the origins and conditions of health care are examined.
