About this book

Clerics in the Middle Ages were subjected to differing ideals of masculinity, both from within the Church and from lay society. The historians in this volume interrogate the meaning of masculine identity for the medieval clergy, by considering a wide range of sources, time periods and geographical contexts.

Reviews

'Overall, I highly recommend Negotiating Clerical Identities to faculty, graduate students and undergraduates who work in the fields of gender, religion, and sexuality studies. The volume fulfills perfectly the mission of Palgrave's innovative Genders and Sexualities in History Series precisely because the contributors contest the universality of medieval masculinity and do so with interpretative flair and scholarly integrity.' - Lynda L. Coon, The Medieval Review
