Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Daughters of London contains the table of contents, the acknowledgements, a list of figures and tables and a list of abbreviations. Women in the Middle Ages, as women do today, formed their identities in myriad ways. They defined who they were by the place they lived, as Londoners, Parisians, or Castilians, by their occupation or vocation, as spinners, brewsters, or nuns, by their marital status, as wives or widows, by their economic status, as nobility, gentry, or peasants, and by their religion, as Christians, Jews, or Muslims. The book focuses on both quantitative and qualitative approaches that allow an examination of how the factors of religion, occupation, and gender worked to influence testators' bequests and daughters' experiences in late medieval London.

Keywords: economic status; late medieval London
