Violence and Society in the Early Medieval West
ISBN 0851157130 / 9780851157139 / 0-85115-713-0Find This Book
This work begins with the premise that the "violence" of life in the Middle Ages is nowadays both taken for granted and misunderstood. The essays in this collection all suggest or explore reasons why violent acts might have been perpetrated, and attempt to understand the social priorities which governed such acts. The studies aim to clarify a range of issues including the creation of political identities and the establishment of social order, matters of administration, colonisation, religious ritual, and gender.
