Pilgrims and Pilgrimage in the Medieval West
Pilgrims and Pilgrimage in the Medieval West
Paperback      ISBN: 1860646492
Pilgrimage was an integral part of both medieval religion and medieval life, and from its origins in the fourth-century Mediterranean world it spread rapidly to Northern Europe as a pan-European devotional phenomenon. Concentrating on the medieval Latin West, this book covers the period spanning the growth in pilgrimage during the seventh century to the Protestant Reformation in the 16-century, when pilgrimage ceased to be a vital part of European Christian culture. It draws extensively upon original source materials accounts of pilgrimage, guidebooks, chronicles, wills, covert memos, and state documents, thereby seeking to uncover the motives of the pilgrims themselves as well as details of and attitudes towards their preparations, journeys, shrines, and eventual destinations (particularly Jerusalem, Compostela, and Rome).
Hunters and Poachers: A Cultural and Social History of Unlawful Hunting in England, 1485-1640
Hunters and Poachers
A Cultural and Social History of Unlawful Hunting in England, 1485-1640
Hardcover      ISBN: 0198203241
This is a scholarly study of hunting and poaching, both of which played significant roles in England during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Deer-hunting was an integral part of aristocratic and gentry culture. It afforded not only recreation, but also served as a symbolic substitute for war and rebellion. It provided the occasion for adolescent rites of passage, displays of power and feats of daring, the pursuit of aristocratic feuds and competition for forest and game offices. The distinction between lawful and unlawful hunting remained unclear, for the Game Laws were obscure and difficult to enforce, and tumultuous hunting was frequently a reaction to changes in land use and conflicting use-rights. Professor Manning's meticulously researched study explores symbolic and covert forms of protest, and adds much to our knowledge of the interaction between aristocratic and popular culture in early modern England.
