This panel aspires to explore the textual contexts of debt and obligation in late medieval Europe. Focusing on sources that have been often overlooked by historians interested in debt and obligation, these papers offer fresh interpretations of a broad range of literary and pastoral texts from both England and Italy. In doing so, this panel seeks to offer an extensive picture of the complexities of everyday entanglements in late medieval Europe.
