Medieval economic thought by Diana Wood( file )
31 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 2,372 libraries worldwide
This book is an introduction to medieval economic thought, mainly from the twelfth to the fifteenth centuries, as it emerges from the works of academic theologians and lawyers and other sources - from Italian merchants' writings to vernacular poetry, Parliamentary legislation, and manorial court rolls. It raises a number of questions based on the Aristotelian idea of the mean, the balance and harmony underlying justice, as applied by medieval thinkers to the changing economy. How could private ownership of property be reconciled with God's gift of the earth to all in common? How could charity balance resources between rich and poor? What was money? What were the just price and the just wage? How was a balance to be achieved between lender and borrower and how did the idea of usury change to reflect this? The answers emerge from a wide variety of ecclesiastical and secular sources

"Boy bishops, Holy Innocents, child saints, martyrs and prophets, choirboys and choirgirls, orphans, charity-school children, Sunday-school children, privileged children, deprived, exploited and suffering children - all these feature in this exciting collection of over thirty original essays by a team of international scholars. The overall themes are the development of the idea of childhood and the experience of children within Christian society - the often ambiguous role of the child both as passive object of ecclesiastical concern and as active religious subject. The authors consider theological and liturgical issues and the social history of the family, as well as art history, literature and music. In its interdisciplinary scope the work reflects the manifold ways in which children have participated in the life of the Church over the centuries." "The subjects under discussion range from the girls of fourth-century Rome to missionary activity in nineteenth-century India; from the unbaptized babies of Byzantium to the Salisbury choirgirls of the 1990s. Adopting a broad, ecumenical approach, the collection includes perspectives on Greeks, Latins, Catholics, Protestants, Anglicans and Dissenters."--Jacket

"The thirty-two highly original essays in this collection, by both Christian and Jewish scholars, stretch chronologically from the ideas of Origen in the third century to the Holocaust, the Gulf War, American fundamentalist attitudes, and the problems of Croatia in the twentieth. They cover a stimulating range of topics, focusing both on the practical ways in which Christians and Jews lived or failed to live together in diverse social contexts, and the theoretical reasons which underpinned this. Many discuss Christian attitudes to the Jews - both philo-Semitism, stemming from the role of the Jews as guardians of the Old Testament, whose culture was fundamental to Christianity, and anti-Semitism, stemming from Jewish responsibility for the Crucifixion of Christ, and the ensuing 'myth of the Jew', which depicted him as the devil, as anti-Christ, as the poisoner of wells, and as the fountain of all evil. This resulted not only in persecution and pogroms, but more subtly in attempts to desecrate the consecrated Host. The position of the Jew according to Christian law - both the canon law of the Church and the civil law, as manifested in the oath taken by Jewish deponents in court, also feature. There are also some pioneering essays on Christian-Jewish culture, dealing with subjects as varied as the Jew in Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice as a reflection of Elizabethan Christian attitudes to Judaism, the introduction of so-called 'Christian' organs into the synagogues of Victorian England, and the anti-Jewish attitudes of Wagner as depicted in the Ring and Parsifal."--BOOK JACKET

Life and thought in the northern church, c.1100-c.1700 : essays in honour of Claire Cross by Diana Wood( Book )
12 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 286 libraries worldwide
"Devout northern lay women and men, Puritan earls, godly preachers, heretics, family members, northern bishops and archbishops, priests and monks - all these feature in this collection of original essays on medieval and early modern ecclesiastical life and thought in the north of England. The book is partly about people, whether northern inhabitants, or those who were associated with the north, but operated within a wider context: Archbishop Thomas Arundel, for example, whose career is radically reinterpreted, Thomas Larkman, vicar of Tavistock, and Henry Darley, MP. Other subjects explored range over grammar schools and early printed books, episcopal jurisdiction and administration, and the interpretation of archives, especially wills."--Jacket
Women and religion in medieval England ( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 224 libraries worldwide
"These papers, written by historians and archaeologists, discuss the religious devotion and spiritual life of medieval women from all walks of life. From an analysis of the architecture and economic organisation of nunneries, to an assessment of the medieval Church's response to the pain and perils of childbirth, these papers consider the influence of the church on the lives of women, and the influence that women had on the life and worship of the Church."--BOOK JACKET
Medieval money matters ( Book )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 153 libraries worldwide
"In bringing down the barriers between historians and numismatists, the five papers by James Bolton, Richard Britnell, Martin Allen, Pamela Nightingale and Nicholas Mayhew, presented here, demonstrate why medieval money matters. Placing emphasis on the supply of money in circulation in medieval England, the contributors address such issues as when a money economy was established in England, what form it took, and the impact it had on society and the economy. They look in particular at how the availability of coinage affected markets, trade and exchange, credit and debt, and moneylending, and examine both the characteristics of money and its function, drawing on historical and numismatic evidence."--Jacket
