The Late Medieval English College and its Context
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Secular colleges stand as the most characteristic late medieval religious foundation, with hundreds established across fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Europe; but they remain by far the least studied. This volume provides the first scholarly overview of the late medieval college and its place in English religion, society and culture. The contributions survey and reflect the wide influence of the college. They consider the religious, political, intellectual, educational, charitable, musical and artistic contributions of these foundations, and combine detailed case studies with broader surveys placing the English college in its wider British and European context. The volume thus offers an unrivalled introduction to English secular colleges, demonstrating why these foundations were so important to late medieval religion and society.
