Identifying Chaste Widows: Documenting a religious vocation
The Ties that Bind: Essays in Medieval British History in Honor of Barbara Hanawalt (2010)
  • Susan M B Steuer, Western Michigan University
Abstract

Hanawalt (emerita, British studies, The Ohio State U.) is celebrated for her landmark work in the history of everyday life in the Middle Ages. The 12 essays of this honorary volume reflect this theme and the new uses she brought to legal and other primary documents as sources of information for women, peasants, children and others who were previously neglected in the history books. Focusing on England, topics include the mayors, the ports, the bishops, religious vocation of women, alien clothworkers, and Margery Kempe. This is a terrific source for current trends by major researchers in the field. Call number at Waldo Library DA175 .T54 2011
