Marriage Contracts from Chaucer to the Renaissance Stage by Kathryn Jacobs

By Kathryn Jacobs

From the 14th century to the center of the seventeenth, alterations in marriage legislation affected literary depictions of marriage in marked methods, in line with Kathryn Jacobs's astute interdisciplinary therapy of nuptial contracts. She relates the adjustments in marriage legislations and in addition the enforcement rules of church courts to the altering literary remedy of marriage in Chaucer's paintings, in medieval secret performs, and within the Renaissance performs of the overdue sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. whilst Chaucer was once writing his Canterbury stories, Jacobs argues, the wedding agreement used to be popular to his viewers. He may possibly as a result expect them to acknowledge the parallels he attracts among this accepted agreement and the extramarital or postmarital "contracts" he designed. The secret performs, in the meantime, have been well known accurately simply because they violated the wedding agreement because it used to be normally recognized. through the Renaissance, in spite of the fact that, church legislations had replaced significantly, and the drama mirrored public resentment and confusion concerning the new regulations. one of many unforeseen result of this used to be the start of the "lusty widow" as a level fable determine. Focusing first on Chaucer after which on drama, Jacobs bargains a bridge among the overdue heart a long time and the Renaissance, displaying how the lives of daily humans in each one age have been stricken by the dealing with of marriage legislation within the ecclesiastical courts.
