With some notable exceptions, the subject of outlawry in medieval and early-modern English history has attracted relatively little scholarly attention. This volume helps to address this significant gap in scholarship, and encourage further study of the subject, by presenting a series of new studies, based on original research, that address significant features of outlawry and criminality over an extensive period of time. The volume casts important light on, and raises provocative questions about, the definition, ambiguity, variety, causes, function, adaptability, impact and representation of outlawry during this period. It also helps to illuminate social and governmental attitudes and responses to outlawry and criminality, which involved the interests of both church and state. From different perspectives, the contributions to the volume address the complex relationships between outlaws, the societies in which they lived, the law and secular and ecclesiastical authorities, and, in doing so, reveal much about the strengths and limitations of the developing state in England. In terms of its breadth and the compelling interest of its subject matter, the volume will appeal to a wide audience of social, legal, political and cultural historians.

De la fin du Moyen Âge au tournant du XIXe siècle, le gibet trône en plein coeur de Paris comme de Londres; la souffrance, le supplice, le spectaculaire de l'exécution sont parmi les pièces maîtresses du système pénal. Cette omniprésence de la peine de mort est-elle le signe d'une société violente ? D'un processus de civilisation encore inachevé ? Loin des idées reçues, ce livre révèle la place centrale et jamais démentie de l'exécution capitale dans l'histoire culturelle de l'Europe. À l'appui d'archives, de récits contemporains, de documents iconographiques, Pascal Bastien dresse une véritable cartographie de la mort à Londres et à Paris et redonne la voix aux suppliciés, tout en restituant le quotidien des bourreaux. On entend s'élever les clameurs de la foule et on comprend, enfin, que la peine capitale a pu sous différentes formes constituer et préserver le lien social.

There may not be a more fascinating a historical period than the late fourteenth century in Europe. The Hundred Years' War ravaged the continent, yet gallantry, chivalry, and literary brilliance flourished in the courts of England and elsewhere. It was a world in transition, soon to be replaced by the Renaissance and the Age of Exploration -- and John of Gaunt was its central figure. In today's terms, John of Gaunt was a multibillionaire with a brand name equal to Rockefeller. He fought in the Hundred Years' War, sponsored Chaucer and proto-Protestant religious thinkers, and survived the dramatic Peasants' Revolt, during which his sumptuous London residence was burned to the ground. As head of the Lancastrian branch of the Plantagenet family, Gaunt was the unknowing father of the War of the Roses; after his death, his son usurped the crown from his nephew, Richard II. Gaunt's adventures represent the culture and mores of the Middle Ages as those of few others do, and his death is portrayed in The Last Knight as the end of that enthralling period.
