9780198201564: Medieval Westminster 1200-1540

This unique look at the town of Westminster is a study of the nature of the urban community in the late Middle Ages. As a small town, characterized by a complex economy and society but lacking legal incorporation, Westminster typified the large yet neglected class of medieval urban centers. Rosser here examines the forces that existed to contain tensions and ensure continuity in the community. The regular expressions of shared interests and common identity--in local government, parochial life, and the activities of guilds--are shown to be essential to the survival of the town. A valuable contribution to the study of the social and economic history of the late Middle Ages, this work will be of interest to students of late medieval economic and social history as well as to urban historians.

About the Author:

Gervase Rosser is at St. Catherine's College, Oxford.

Review:


"The breadth of Rosser's admirable research energetically reveals the diverse society of medieval Westminster."--Speculum


"Carefully-marshalled statistics and judicious conclusions....Essential reading for students of medieval urban society. His judicious study is enlivened by occasional witty asides, and the book is as readable as it is substantial."--Albion


"Scholars in urban history will find his work a significant counterexample to much current theory, while prosopographers and genealogists will welcome his detailed appendix on local leaders."--Choice

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1997. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. As a royal capital, Westminster was unique: a small town, characterized by a complex economy and society, but lacking legal incorporation. Gervase Rosser examines the nature of the urban community. Given social diversity and competing interests, what forces existed to contain tensions and ensure continuity? The regular expressions of shared interests and common identity - in local government, parochial life, and the activities of guilds - are perceived to be essential to the survival of the town. Gervase Rosser s argument has implications not only for the history of the small town, but for the history of urbanization throughout the medieval and early modern period.
