Medieval households by David Herlihy( )

39 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How should the medieval family be characterized? Who formed the household and what were the ties of kinship, law and affection that bound the members together? David Herlihy explores these questions from ancient Greece to the households of fifteenth-century Tuscany, to provide a broad new interpretation of family life. In a series of bold hypotheses, he presents his ideas about the emergence of a distinctive medieval household and its transformation over a thousand years. Book jacket

The black death and the transformation of the west by David Herlihy( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Black Death was the great watershed in medieval history. In this compact book, David Herlihy makes bold yet subtle and subversive inquiries that challenge historical thinking about this disastrous period. As in a finely tuned detective story, he upturns intriguing bits of epidemiological evidence. And, looking beyond the view of the Black Death as unmitigated catastrophe, Herlihy sees in it the birth of technological advance as societies struggled to create labor-saving devices in the wake of population losses. New evidence for the plague's role in the establishment of universities, the spread of Christianity, the dissemination of vernacular cultures, and even the rise of nationalism demonstrates that this cataclysmic event marked a true turning point in history
Medieval and Renaissance Pistoia; the social history of an Italian town, 1200-1430 by David Herlihy( Book )

42 editions published between 1967 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pistoria (in Latin other possible spellings are Pistorium or Pistoriae) was centre of Gallic, Ligurian and Etruscan settlements before becoming a Roman colony in the 6th century BC, along the important road Via Cassia: in 62 BC the demagogue Catiline and his fellow conspirators were slain nearby. From the 5th century the city was a bishopric, and during the Lombardic kingdom it was a royal city and had several privileges. Pistoia's most splendid age began in 1177 when it proclaimed itself a free commune: in the following years it became an important political centre, erecting walls and several public and religious buildings."--Wikipedia
