Johns Hopkins Symposia in Comparative History #11: Medieval Marriage: Two Models from Twelfth-Century Franceby Georges Duby
Synopses & Reviews
"Duby presents a fascinating account of medieval marriage among the aristocracy of northern France, emphasizing the main features of their marriage strategies, the maintenance of the lineage, ' and the making of good marriages."--Journal of Ecclesiastical History. The Johns Hopkins Symposia in Comparative History.
Eminent French social historian Georges Duby identifies the twelfth century as a crucial turning point in the development of the institution of marriage in Western civilization. His study of medieval marriage is a worthy successor to the exploration of social attitudes begun by Philippe Aries and continued by Fernand Braudel.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 111-138).
