Abstract

The first paper will focus on gender segregation in detail and intersectionality in general in medieval Central European cities as reflected in medieval town privileges as the Magdeburg, the Lübeck, the Nürnberg etc. rights. In the second paper attention will be paid to analysing the role of women in oaths from urban environments using the example of selected cities (Silesian and northern Moravian region). Emphasis will be placed on both – oaths meant for women, and the role women played in the texts of oaths intended for men. The aim of the third paper is to try to answer the question about the social and cultural boundaries of the participation of townswomen in local cults.
