"A fascinating account of medieval marriage among the aristocracy of northern France, emphasizing the main features of their marriage strategies." -- Journal of Ecclesiastical History
From the Back Cover
Eminent French social historian Georges Duby identifies the twelfth century as a crucial turning point in the development of the institution of marriage in Western civilization. His study of medieval marriage is a worthy successor to the exploration of social attitudes begun by Philippe Aries and continued by Fernand Braudel. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
