Women & Power in the Middle Ages

Collection of Essays that provide a new perspective of gender in the Medieval world

Slight damage to the dust jacket, but overall a very good copy.

About the book:
Power in medieval society has traditionally been ascribed to figures of public authority―violent knights and conflicting sovereigns who altered the surface of civic life through the exercise of law and force. The wives and consorts of these powerful men have generally been viewed as decorative attendants, while common women were presumed to have had no power or consequence.
