Guilds in England 1250-1550

Gervase Rosser

  • The only title to address the subject of medieval guilds by focussing on individuals and their motivations in joining these fraternities
  • Offers an accessible account of medieval guilds which contextualizes the subject within larger historical issues
  • Takes a comparative approach, setting the English guilds in their wider European context
  • Draws parallels behind the medieval debates about the individual and "society" and the same debates in contemporary society
