View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This is the first comprehensive survey of the religious, social and cultural life of late medieval and reformation parishes. This collection introduces the reader to the large number of anthropological, literary, socio-economic and quantitative approaches. It features studies of individual communities and larger areas, illuminates the parish through a great variety of records (parochial, manorial, municipal, diocesan and legal) and explores the most important neighbouring disciplines (literature, art history, archaeology). This volume covers town and country, northern as well as southern communities, and it provides an indication of the European setting. For the first time, the parish is studied through the period just before and just after the enormous social and religious changes of the sixteenth century. All the contributors present their topics not as 'parochial', but as local history in the widest sense of the word, by both reflecting and contributing to current historiographical issues.
