While the heart of the book is in medieval England, it does cover the rest of Europe. Sources are drawn from ecclesiastical wrings, legal sources, personal writing and medical writings. All of the source material is translated into modern English and there will be a comprehensive general introduction and as well as introductions to the individual sections and extracts.
