Samuel Kline Cohn Jr

Published by Manchester University Press

Manchester Medieval Sources MUP

  • A fascinating collection of documents focussing on the 'contagion of rebellion' that followed the Black Death, which ravaged Europe in the years between 1355 and 1382
  • Includes over 200 documents, most of which are translated here into English for the first time
  • The authors range across a wide political and intellectual horizon and include revolutionaries, the artistocracy, merchants and representatives from the church
  • Will become a required text for introductory courses on popular revolt, where there is currently a scarcity of medieval documents
  • Vital for courses in late medieval history, allowing for further study of the popular rebellions of the era
