Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The introduction and bibliography enable both beginning students and medievalists newly interested in family studies to set the articles gathered here in the context of the later 20th-century transformation of medieval studies and, more broadly, historical scholarship. These supporting materials, like the 11 articles, affirm the profoundly interdisciplinary character of contemporary medieval studies.

Book News Annotation:

The 11 articles of this collection were first published between 1974 and 1996. They were selected as representative of the development of ideas and methodologies in this new topic in medieval studies. Highly specific studies—of one family, or one village—as well as more expansive themes applying to all of medieval Europe are included. Among the authors whose articles are included are David Herlihy, John Boswell, Judith Bennett, and Pamela Sheingorn. Neel (history, Colorado College) has written an introduction that summarizes the articles and comments on the state of research. There is a bibliography, but no index.

Synopsis:

During the past thirty years, the study of medieval families has emerged as a focus of discussion in European history. Largely unexplored in professional publications and teaching curricula until the 1970s, family history is now accepted as an aspect of medieval history essential to the development of the period's institutions and culture, and a field useful to comparative family studies.

The present volume brings together essays by historians, art historians, and literary scholars about the structures, social functions, and emotional characteristics of families in the middle ages, from demographic, legal, theological, art historical, and literary sources according to a broad array of theoretical approaches. Presenting these materials in the chronological order of its constituent articles' publication, the collection reveals how scholars of the 1970s through the 1990s argued the importance of previously unconsidered questions about the shape of medieval familial experience, and how their mutual information and criticism has refined and added to this investigation in the intervening period. The introduction and bibliography enable both beginning students and medievalists newly interested in family studies to set the articles gathered here in the context of the later twentieth-century transformation of medieval studies and, more broadly, historical scholarship. These supporting materials, like the eleven articles, affirm the profoundly interdisciplinary character of contemporary medieval studies.
