This collection of essays addresses a number of questions regarding the role of consent in marriage and in sexual relations outside of marriage in ancient and medieval societies. Ranging from ancient Greece and Rome to the Byzantine Empire and Western Medieval Europe, the contributors examine rape, seduction, and the role of consent in establishing the punishment of one or both parties; the issue of marital debt and spousal rape; and the central question of what is perceived as coercion and what may be the validity or value of coerced consent. Other concepts, such as honor and shame, are also investigated. Because of the wide range--in time and place--of societies studied, the reader is able to see many different approaches to the question of consent and coercion as well as a certain evolution, in which Christianity plays an important role.

Women  Marriage  and Family in Medieval Christendom

The eleven essays offered in Women, Marriage, and Family in Medieval Christendom reflect the spirit and originality of Father Michael M. Sheehan, for whom the volume was collected. The essays consider three thematic categories that were dominant in most of Sheehan's own scholarly work: the role, position, and contributions of medieval women; the development of Christian marriage, especially in the High Middle Ages; and the secular family with its legal and emotional relationships. A close reading of the papers, particularly those concerned with the themes of marriage and the family, reveal what we can designate as the Sheehan school of social history. The collection expands on several of Sheehan's research areas, and while it shows a considerable interest in medieval England, it does not disregard the Continent. The volume is a worthy tribute to Sheehan and will be of great interest to students of social and legal history, women's history, the development of marriage, and the idea of the family.

Marriage Litigation in Medieval England

This book tells one part of the long history of the institution of marriage. Questions concerning the formation and annulment of marriage came under the exclusive jurisdiction of the church courts during the Middle Ages. Drawing on unpublished records of these courts, Professor Helmholz describes the practical side of matrimonial jurisdiction and relates it to his outline of the formal law of marriage. He investigates the nature of the cases heard, the procedure used, the people involved and changes over the period covered, all of which add to what is known about marriage and legal practice in medieval England. The concluding assessment of canonical jurisdiction over marriage suggests that the application of the law was more successful than is usually thought.

Kinship and Marriage in Medieval Hispanic Chivalric Romance

This monograph studies two interconnected and crucially important elements in medieval Spanish and Catalan chivalric romances: the influence on the characters and on the plots of both lineal and wider family relationships, and of marriage and the conflicting imperatives that shape it. It analyses social themes in four romances that were written during the century and a half before the unification of Spain under the Catholic Monarchs and their grandson, Carlos V: the Castilian Libro del caballero Zifar and Amadis de Gaula, and the Catalan Tirant lo Blanc and Curial e Guelfa. The heroes of these romances advance their fortunes by heroic deeds and by advantageous marriages. Shared characteristics in the texts reveal, if not adherence to similar literary forms, response to similar social conditions and to a climate of opinion about those conditions. By rendering the social setting of the works more intelligible, Michael Harney makes possible a fresh and informed approach to the literary criticism of the works. His command of anthropological and sociological theory gives his study special authority. The contents by chapter are: 1. Introduction; 2. Lineage and Clan; 3. Kindred and Cousinship; 4. Marriage and Consent; 5. Marriage and the Calculus of Advantage; 6. Conclusion; and Index.

This volume addresses the current fashion for research on the family and domesticity in the past. It draws together work from various disciplines - historical, art-historical and literary - with their very different source materials and from a broad geographical area, including some countries - such as Croatia and Poland - which are not usually considered in standard text books on the medieval family. This volume considers the various affective relationships within and around the family and the manner in which those relationships were regulated and ritualized in more public arenas. Despite their disparate approaches and geographical spread, these essays share many thematic concerns; the ideologies which structured gender roles, inheritance rights, incest law and the ethics of domestic violence, for example, are all considered here. This collection originates from the Leeds IMC in 2001 when the special strand was entitled Domus and Familia and attracted huge participation. This book aims to reflect that richness and variety whilst contributing to an expanding area of historical enquiry.
