WOMEN AND GIRLS IN THE MIDDLE AGES
In addition to eye-catching visuals on every page (all fully captioned), the book features timelines, maps, and numerous fact boxes. Main subjects are divided into 14 two-page spreads with artwork and decorative borders attractively arranged around text passages. Subtitles add focus and glossary terms are printed in boldface. The volume outlines the similarities and differences between the lives of noblewomen, townswomen, and peasants, with special emphasis on marriage, childbirth, and raising a family; education; joining a nunnery; learning a trade; medieval style and beauty; and the lives of women from around the world in the same time period.
