Women in the Middle Ages

الغلاف الأمامي
Crowell, 1978 - 264 من الصفحات
Women in the middle ages corrects the omissions of traditional history by focusing on the lives, expectations, and accomplishments of medieval women. The Gieses' lively text, illuminated by illustrations from medieval manuscripts, art, and architecture, depects the Middle Ages as a vibrant time in which women were powerful agents of change.

نبذة عن المؤلف (1978)

Joseph Gies was born on October 8, 1916 in Ann Arbor, Mich and attended the University of Michigan and Columbia University. He held jobs with several publishers including Encyclopaedia Britannica, and was editor-in-chief for a division of Doubleday. Gies is best known for several books, such as Life in a Medieval Castle, Life in a Medieval City, and Life in a Medieval Village. These books, written with his wife Frances Carney, explore existence in Medieval times. The works, and his others, are noted for their highly readable, but thorough quality. Topics such as archaeology, government, dining, entertainment, and daily life are presented in fascinating detail.
