MEDIEVAL WOMEN looks at a thousand years of English history, as it affected - and was made by - women.

Henrietta Leyser considers the problems and attitudes fundamental to every woman of the time: medieval views on sex, marriage and motherhood; the world of work and the experience of widowhood for peasant, townswoman and aristocrat. The intellectual and spiritual worlds of medieval women are also explored.

Medieval Women celebrates the diversity and vitality of English women's lives in the Middle Ages.
