Portraits of Medieval Women: Family, Marriage and Social Relationships in Thirteenth Century England
Palgrave Macmillan, 4 juil. 2003 - 185 pages
Although numerous studies of medieval women and a number of biographies of medieval queens and noblewomen have appeared in recent years, comparatively few studies have sought to combine biographical and prosopographical approaches in order to develop portraits of specific women in order to highlight different life experiences of medieval women. The individual chapters can be read as separate histories of their specific subjects as well as case studies which together provide a coherent picture of the medieval English noblewoman.
