Kingdoms and Communities in Western Europe 900-1300 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This wide-ranging and perceptive book focuses on the collective values and activities of lay society over several centuries, from trade guilds and manor courts to the development of parliaments and the rule of feudal monarchs. It offers a new approach to the history of medieval Europe. The second edition of this important study incorporates a substantial new introduction, which amplifies the arguments of the original edition and takes account of recent research.

Synopsis:

Contending that medieval attitudes and behavior have been too readily defined in terms of hierarchical structures of government, clerical thought, and a narrow notion of kinship, Reynolds streses the powerful horizontal bonds of association that permeated the lay societies of England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy between the 10th and 13th centuries, and offers a stimulating new approach to medieval European history.
