Product Description

Review

"...a rich and accessible resource for students and scholars with varying degrees of familiarity with the field." Renaissance Quarterly, Emilie Bergmann, University of California, Berkeley

"an extraordinary book in its intellectual breadth, scholarly thoroughness and historical insight. Few historians today would even attempt such an ambitious and exhaustive study; even fewer could bring such a project to a successful conclusion. The book is indeed a major achievement, and it marks a high point in the author's young but accomplished and prolific career." Speculum Teofilo F. Ruiz, University of California, Los Angeles

Book Description

This full-length study of the Portuguese royal court in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries shows how women and men, noblemen and clergy, artisans and minor servants at the royal court lived in close proximity and were connected to each other. It describes the constant displacement of this complex community within the geographical space of Portugal, and how everyday life at court was shaped by ceremonial duties and common activities.
