Overview

Overview

New contributions to the most important critical debates of the period.
The themes of 'image' and 'representation' play a major part in the essays collected in this volume; subjects explored include the religious sympathies of townsfolk and gentry and their physical manifestations, the cultural setting for the activities of leading families of the period and the interaction of Crown and community of the realm. As the fruit of original archival research on the later Middle Ages, overall the contributions offer the most up-to-date scholarship on the period, and a snapshot of the most crucial issues in current research.
