Reviews

'The essays in this volume reconstruct good stories from the archives, and tell them well. In bringing to light these individual cases, they also give us information about a wide range of other topics, including family relationships, daily life, ideas about sainthood, and magic...Taken together, they offer a set of fascinating snippets of what can be found in medieval archives.' - Archives: The journal of the British Records Association
