Abstract

Conflict was endemic in many aspects of medieval society. It appeared in both pivotal and everyday events. This conflict often involved violence, but could also concern legal disputes and familial concerns. Frequently the three areas overlapped and interacted. These papers will discuss these interactions and the different types of conflict encountered in the medieval period. They will investigate conflict from different perspectives and in different contexts.
