Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0851157750, Hardcover)

The question of women's status within mediaeval society has generated much interest concerning their social position, education, piety, relationships, and autonomy withing these arenas. This volume unites all these issues in its exploration of the legal agency of mediaeval women. Essays focus upon women's control over property and testamentary bequests, over living arrangements, guardianship, and over their own bodies. While some of the conclusions question women's ability to act in law, other essays reveal that some had an understanding of their legal rights and of wider legal procedures that enabled them to exercise a degree of legal autonomy.
