"Medieval England is a topic that has perennial fascination: King Arthur, Robin Hood, chivalry, and Beowulf seem to have obtained a permanent place in high-school reading lists and the popular imagination. Spanning the 5th through the 15th century, this encyclopedia covers broad topics such as music, women, and language, as well as specific topics such as people, famous buildings, printing, monastic orders, prostitution, and stained glass. There are helpful charts of the kings and queens of England, archbishops of Canterbury and York, and the popes. Black-and-white illustrations abound, and each entry contains a bibliography for further research."--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection of New Titles", American Libraries, May 1999.

Old age in late medieval England by Joel Thomas Rosenthal( )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Old Age in Late Medieval England, Joel T. Rosenthal explores the life spans, sustained activities, behaviors, and mentalites of the individuals who approached and who passed the biblically stipulated span of three score and ten in late medieval England. Drawing on a wide variety of documentary and court records (which were, however, more likely to specify with precision an individual's age on reaching majority or inheriting property than on the occasion of his or her death) as well as literary and didactic texts, he examines "old age" as a social construct and web of behavioral patterns woven around a biological phenomenon

Social memory in late medieval England : village life and proofs of age by Joel Thomas Rosenthal( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This concise and unique volume explores the vital relationship between testimony, memory, and the community in medieval society. Joel T. Rosenthal assembles various categories of testimonies to illuminate how “ordinary” Late Medieval people saw themselves as units of their community, their awareness of the issues surrounding the theater of birth, their interest in the world of and beyond the village, and what aspects of the ubiquitous mother Church were worth recalling. Supported by primary sources and by modern scholarly focus on such issues as social memory, village life, rumor and gossip, and demography, this book provides both a wealth of source material and insightful discussion on how historians can chart the role of memory and community in its shaping of medieval identity and society
