Description
 

The medieval landscape, as viewed through the eyes of scholars, was hardly populated by women. Particularly, young unmarried women or maidens have been paid little attention. This book aims to fill that gap by examining the meaning, experiences and voices of young womanhood. The life-phase of adolescence was different for maidens than for young men, and as such merits study in its own right. At the same time a study of young womanhood provides insights into ideals of feminine gender roles and identities at different social levels.
