Women, memory and testimony in the medieval ecclesiastical courts of Canterbury and York

Kane, B (2013) 'Women, memory and testimony in the medieval ecclesiastical courts of Canterbury and York.' In: Kane, B and Williamson, F, eds. Women, agency and the law, 1300-1700. Pickering and Chatto, London. ISBN 9781848933842

Abstract

The interaction of women with the legal system of England and Wales is a neglected topic of late medieval and early modern historiography. Based on close readings of both public and private documents – court records, churchwarden accounts, depositions, diaries, letters and pamphlets – this collection of essays presents the largely untold story of non-elite women and their dealings with the law.
