Description

This book asks how, in a time of crisis, medieval citizens developed an independent sense of ethics. Witness testimonies from Marseille's court records offer a small window into the neighborhoods of Marseille and reveal how humble people, often women, used the role of witness to become the arbiters of their communities.

"[An] engaging and beautifully written book." -Medieval Feminist Forum

"Witnesses, Neighbors, and Community in Late Medieval Marseille takes a creative approach to legal history that considers witnesses' narratives and how they conveyed communal judgments in a judicial context, perhaps with some irony, since the judicial resolutions to most cases were not recorded or did not survive. Through her interpretation of the testimonies, McDonough has illuminated the social history of late medieval Marseille, shedding light on gender roles, attitudes toward Jews, class distinctions, and interactions among families and neighbors. Solidly researched and well argued, this book offers a fascinating peek into the lives of the men and women of medieval Marseille." - The Medieval Review
