Episode 69: Women part VI, Women and the Law Part 1

In today's episode we look at how the law defined the role of women in society, and how it allowed women to interact with the law itself.

Episode 69: Women part VI, Women and the Law Part 1

This is Episode 68: A Short Discussion of The Law as a Source

Today is going to be a brief digression into the value of legal codes as a source, which will set us up nicely for the next episode, where we will begin to discuss the status of women in early medieval legal codes. Charlemagne's proclivity for pink frilly party balloons is discussed but ultimately dismissed.
