"Until the Middle Ages, a king could marry his first cousin, a priest could have a wife and several concubines, and a nobleman could banish a wife if she didn't produce a son.

The three orders : feudal society imagined by Georges Duby( Book )

20 editions published between 1978 and 2009 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Three Orders, prominent Annales historian Georges Duby offers a tripartite construct of medieval French society, a construct which depicts men separating themselves hierarchically into those who pray, those who fight, and those who work. He considers how this medieval theory of orders originated, discusses its complex history, and shows how different interests--cultural, political, and economic--were involved in its creation and use. The Three Orders shows how the tripartite schema come to occupy a central position in social thought and clarifies the manner in which feudal society viewed itself

Duby examines the history of France from the rise of the Capetians in the mid-tenth century to the execution of Joan of Arc in the mid-fifteenth.

He describes the growth of the castle and the village, the building blocks of the new Western European civilization of the second millennium AD

Saint Bernard, l'art cistercien by Georges Duby( Book )

94 editions published between 1969 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème de couv. indique : "Saint Bernard n'a pas fondé l'ordre cistercien, mais il a fait son succès. Pendant les deux derniers tiers du XIIe siècle, à travers l'Europe entière, va s'édifier le grand bâtiment, le vaste chantier issu de Cîteaux. Et saint Bernard en est bien le patron, le maître d'ouvrage dont la parole a gouverné, comme le reste, l'art. Parce que cet art est inséparable d'une morale, qu'il incarnait. Mais si la parole de saint Bernard eut cette force de persuasion, si la congrégation qu'il animait put édifier ce qui voulait être la représentation visible d'une éthique et si cet édifice exerça tant d'influence sur la culture européenne, c'est que le siècle attendait cette parole, cette exigence de rigueur, de renoncement et de dépassement. Car si la manière cistercienne de construire fut suscitée par l'enseignement de saint Bernard, elle le fut aussi par tout l'élan du XIIe siècle."

Love and marriage in the Middle Ages by Georges Duby( Book )

22 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume Georges Duby - member of the Academie Francaise and one of the preeminent medieval scholars of our time - addresses the theme of love and marriage in the Middle Ages." "These essays enrich Duby's position as the virtual progenitor and unequalled master of medieval social history. Rather than charting the evolution of love as a mere history of feelings, passions, and mentalities independent of or isolated from the history of other components of social education, Duby places this evolution in the material context of social relationships and daily life. Examining the poetry and practice of courtly love and the mores of aristocratic marriages, Duby shows the Middle Ages to be male-dominated. Women were regarded as symbols, as figures of temptation who paradoxically had no desires of their own. Duby argues that the structure of sexual relationships took its cue from the family and from feudalism - both bastions of masculinity." "Duby also reflects on general issues in the writing of cultural history, on the history of pain and heresy, and gives a personal view of the state of historical research in France over recent generations. He argues that the rapid growth of interest in the history of marriage and the family reflects contemporary disquiet stemming from crises in the familiar structures of late twentieth-century society." "Beautifully written in Duby's characteristically nuanced and powerful style, this collection is the ideal entree into Duby's thinking about marriage and the diversities of love, spousal decorum, family structure, and their cultural context in bodily and spiritual values. It will be of great interest to students in social and cultural history, in medieval and early modern history, and in women's studies. It will also appeal to a broader audience interested in the nature of social life in the Middle Ages."--Jacket
