Description

Virtually no area of medieval society was untouched by ecclesiastical law. Whether it was the church's interest in certain life situations, or the interests of ecclesiastical personnel or institutions, canon law was involved in every corner of life. This session looks at drunkenness, marriage, and cemeteries to see how church law and secular society existed in parallel. or sometimes at cross purposes.
