• A fascinating insight into the life of a woman from agrarian society

Florent Véniel offers here the anticipated continuation of La Vie Quotidienne de la femme au Moyen Âge. The medieval woman is presented in the context of her life, in the very heart of her society. Véniel focuses on the relationships in her life: neighbors, husband, community. She also considers society's view on the medieval woman in all of its complexity, sometimes even contradictory in nature.

We find here the medieval woman associated with the image of Eve, symbolic of sin and carnal desire; and Mary, the mother placed above all the saints.

Far from providing us with the profile of the elite medieval woman, Véniel offers research on women from agrarian society, the middle class.
