In this invigorating collection of essays by leading medieval historians, the issue of laity—primarily the ideas and attitudes of lay people—are examined, as expressed in legal cases, charters, chronicles, and collective activities. The contributors focus on narratives from the Middle Ages, during a period of progress from irrational to rational thought. The essays range chronologically and geographically from the 7th to the 16th century, and from West Britain to Papal and urban Italy.
