Medieval England Summary

Medieval England: A Social History 1250-1550 by P.J.P. Goldberg

All too often the medieval social past has been explored as an adjunct to high politics. The subject of this study is ordinary men and women, for whom the politics of the manor, the vill, or the borough were often far more real and pressing. It engages with questions relating to the various structures of society, be they social hierarchy, household, family, parish or manor, lay or clergy. It also considers the ways in which age, gender, and marital status shaped people's lives.

Medieval England Reviews

'Over the past twenty years, Jeremy Goldberg has significantly altered our understanding of the social history of later medieval Englandhis work has been consistently characterized by its subtlety and intelligence, its deep understanding of the limitations and possibilities of the surviving sources, and its unwavering attention to the centrality of gender to late-medieval society. With this new textbook Goldberg places his ideas into the larger patterns of English social history in the centuries before and after the plague.' Speculum
