Masculinity in medieval Europe
An original, very accessible collection of essays which is based on a huge range of historical sources to reveal the realities of men's lives in the Middle Ages. It covers an impressive geographical range -- including essays on Italy, France, Germany and Byzantium -- and spans the entire medieval period, from the fourth to the fifteenth century. The collection is divided into four main sections: attaining masculinity -- lay men and churchmen; sources of tension; sexuality and the construction of masculinity; and written relationships and social reality.
