Love and Marriage in the Middle Ages

by

Examining the poetry and practice of courtly love and the mores of aristocratic marriages, this work shows that women were regarded as symbols, as figures of temptation who paradoxically had no desire of their own. It also argues that the structure of sexual relationships took its cue from the family and from feudalism. Duby 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.
