Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Hicks adeptly draws out the themes of this diverse and rewarding volue, rightly observing hat it reflects the vigour and debate of late medieval studies. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW Fifteenth-century studies are very much alive and well... able to generate new and challenging research agendas. This excellent collection reflects that well.
