Montaillou

Author(s): Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie (Professor of the History of Modern Civilization, College de France, Paris, France)

History

The village of Montaillou was the last stronghold of the cult of Catharism in medieval France. Under the inquisition of Bishop Fournier members of this sect were persecuted and some burnt at the stake, and the interrogations about the way they lived were chronicled in a Register. From this document Ladurie has reconstructed an intriguing account of everyday peasant life in a medieval village. Montaillou gives us a unique glimpse into how people really lived 700 years ago: from their homes and the food they ate to their body language and attitudes to sex. Paperback (B-Format)
