Piety, Fraternity and Power: Religious Gilds in Late Medieval Yorkshire, 1389-1547

£39.99

Product description

Published in 2000 by York Medieval Press.

Includes a list of maps, list of tables and graphs, list of abbreviations, appendices, bibliography and index. Footnotes and black and white tables, graphs and maps are found throughout the book.

The author David J.F. Crouch is a Research Associate of the Centre foe Medieval Studies, University of York.

The religious gild was central to the structure of late medieval society, providing lay people with a focus for public expressions of orthodox piety that accorded with the doctrinal views of government between 1399 and 1531.
Using evidence from the county of Yorkshire, this book argues that beyond their devotional and ceremonial roles, the influence of these basically pious institutions permeated all aspects of late medieval political, social and economic activity.
The author begins by discussing the evidence for Yorkshire gilds in the late fourteenth century, moving on to survey the changing distribution, development, and membership of fraternities throughout the county over the next century and a half.
Special attention is given to the ways in which the religious gilds of Yorkshire interacted with town government, with clerical bodies, with occupational organisations, and with one another, illustrated with detailed case-studies of the gilds of Corpus Christi, York, and St Mary in Holy Trinity, Hull, which are particularly well-documented.
The final section of the book deals with the decline and disappearance of religious gilds during the Reformation, showing how their devotional purposes were eroded by the new policies of central government and how many gilds anticipated their official dissolution.

Condition is almost as new, light surface marks to the glossy cover. Clean and fresh with a tight binding.
