Crime and Punishment in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Age
Mental-historical Investigations of Basic Human Problems and Social ResponseseBook - 2012
Norms, rules, and laws have determined the interaction of people throughout time, and yet transgressions have always occurred. Crime and subsequent punishments are fundamental issues identifying every society. The articles in this volume study medieval laws and documents reflecting on vices, crimes, and wrongdoings and thus give a profound analysis of the premodern world in its development in social, economic, legal, moral, and ethical terms.
