about this item

With an emphasis on the humanity and suffering endured by his subjects, whether financiers, peasants or aristocrats, Kaeuper describes the personal consequences of violence in the medieval world. He provides a consistent picture of a medieval world that is all too human. Part I studies Italian finance and the medieval English state. Part II examines contemporary critiques of law and disorder. Part III addresses the reality of knightly bloodshed and the implications of its literary manifestations. Part IV considers the independent nature of knightly piety. Each section contains a short introductory essay that relates the articles to follow to recent scholarship. Twenty chapters are divided into four parts: the English crown and Italian financiers; law and disorder; chivalry and literature; holy warriors.
