Book Description

15 July 2013 Religion and Culture in the Middle Ages
This ground breaking volume brings together contributions from scholars across a range of disciplines (including literary studies, history, geography and archaeology) to investigate questions of space, place and identity in the medieval city. Using Chester as a case study with attention to its location on the border between England and Wales, its rich multilingual culture and surviving material fabric the essays recover the experience and understanding of the urban space by individuals and groups within the medieval city, and offer new readings from the vantage-point of twenty-first century disciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

Product Description


Catherine Clarke s marvellous edited anthology, Mapping the Medieval City, offers a fascinating account of what maps, chronicles, literary texts, and other sources tell us about the multiple and shifting meanings of Chester from c1200-1500. The volume s twelve learned and lucid essays are a must read for anyone interested in not only the particular case of medieval Chester but also, more generally, the history of the city. --Kathy Lavezzo, Associate Professor of English, University of Iowa

Few material phenomena are as complex as the city. In its border location, the changing form of Chester dramatically reflects the vicissitudes of military, political and economic fortune, and social difference and conflict within. This book is a model of multidisciplinary coherency, with a diverse collection of intelligent and thoughtful papers which not only reveal how medieval men and women in Chester made sense of their habitat for themselves but at the same time map the solid, autonomous reality of the place. --John Hines, Professor in the School of History, Archaeology and Religion, Cardiff University
