It is only when other variables are introduced, refining the field of enquiry, that the historian is able to gain a real insight into the lives and experiences of medieval people.

This is a collection of interdisciplinary essays, each of which takes an individual approach to young women or the notion of youth as a stage of womens lives in late medieval Europe. Topics covered include prostitution, Joan of Arc, a new interpretation of the representation of young women in the Malterer Embroidery, rape in medieval literature, queenmaking during the Wars of the Roses, female wardship, virgin martyrs and maidenhood as the perfect age of a womens life.
