About this book

This collection of essays focuses attention on how medieval gender intersects with other categories of difference, particularly religion and ethnicity. It treats the period c.800-1500, with a particular focus on the era of the Gregorian reform movement, the First Crusade, and its linked attacks on Jews at home.

Reviews

"The essays are overall remarkably clear in their argumentation and conclusions, with well-justified, representative choices of primary material and concise discussions of the most relevant secondary sources . . . rewarding reading for both a specialized and general audience." - Stephanie Knauss, University of Cologne, Germany, Women's Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal

"This volume is to be applauded for bringing together examinations of both masculinity and femininity, as gender difference is interrogated in both directions." - Margaret Cotter-Lynch, Southeastern Oklahoma State University, US
