Violence and the Medieval Clergy

 

Edited by Gerhard Jaritz, professor of Medieval Studies at Central European University and senior research fellow at the Austrian Academy of Sciences and Ana Marinković, research assistant at the Department of Art History, University of Zagreb

Violence was omnipresent in medieval society and affected all areas of life and the members of all social strata. Surviving sources deal regularly with any issues of violent actions, signs and results of violence, violent people and coping with violence. In such evidence, also the members of the clergy played an important role – as writers about violence and critics of it, but also as perpetrators, victims, and witnesses.
