9780521187374: Pragmatic Utopias: Ideals and Communities, 1200-1630

Spanning the artificial divide between medieval and early modern history, this collection of essays shows how men and women tried to put their ideals into practice, sometimes alone, but more commonly within the shared environment of cloister, college or city. The volume is presented to the distinguished medievalist Barrie Dobson in celebration of his 70th birthday, and takes the reader from a rural landscape to the London of Thomas More, and from the forests of Robin Hood to the central law courts.

Review:

"The editors of this volume have done an admirable job--through judicious selection--of uniting their material as well as can be expected from a volumue of this nature, and the fifteen essays themselves are so engaging as to be seminal. All contributions are strong, and concise--rarely over a dozen pages, exclusive of notes--and many offer provocative insights that challenge our notions of historic categorization and stereotypes. ...a delightful book, and one deserving of multiple readings." Renaissance and Reformation

"Pragmatic Utopias is an impressive collection, marked by a tightly focused theme but illustrated by a wide range of studies. For scholars who recognize idealism and utopias as a feature of medieval society, this will be an indispensable collection." History

"[A] varied and rich collection." Renaissance Quarterly

"A rich collection...we are fortunate to have [it]." The Medieval Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This collection of essays was presented to Barrie Dobson in celebration of his 70th birthday. It will be welcomed by all scholars of pre-modern religion and society. Spanning the artificial divide between medieval and early modern, the contributors - all acknowledged experts in their field - pursue the ways in which men and women tried to put their ideals into practice, sometimes alone, but more commonly in the shared environment of cloister, college or city. The range of topics is testimony to the breadth of Barrie Dobson s own interests, but even more striking are the continuities and shared assumptions across time, and between the dissident and the impeccably orthodox. Taking the reader from a rural anchor-hold to the London of Thomas More, and from the greenwood of Robin Hood to the central law courts, this collection builds into a richly satisfying exploration of the search for perfection in an imperfect world.
