The idea is to focus upon medieval ‘clashes of cultures’ that did not involve the obvious confrontations that immediately spring to mind – between Christians and Muslims, between Christians and Jews, between Christians and pagans, between Catholics and Orthodox Christians, between Catholics and heretics, etc. Instead we want to look at less spectacular but culturally highly important divisions/clashes/differences within ordinary society. This session, the second of two, is focusing on gender and related aspects.
