"Crusader and concubine, laundress and troubadour, mystic and midwife and miniaturist, beguine and bondwoman and the bersatrix rocking the cradle of kings- all find their rightful place in this bountiful compendium. With vast resourcefulness and a lively (and often irreverent) eye for the creaturely real, the authors make it impossible to sustain any last lingering illusions about the Middle Ages being 'a man's world.'

A few examples stood out, but even organized into related topics (. rulers, artists, doctors, et. it made the reading of it tedious at times. Another point is that there was name dropping at times that was not fully explained, almost seeming like one ch While most of the information was not new to me, it was still informative and detailed.

"Between Pit and Pedestal" offers a fascinating in-depth look into the daily lives of women during the middle ages. Authors Marty Newman Williams and Anne Echols present a well-rounded overview of what life for women from various stations of life was like during this era (information on rich and poor, religious women, and scholars is provided). The book is divided into well-researched chapters that offer commentaries on every day life, personal relationships and sexual mores, religion, politics and law as it pertained to women, culture, work, and literature and art. No stone is left unturned, and the authors provide many interesting biographies of medieval women whenever possible to reinforce their research.
The book is fascinating, and reads easily. Extremely well researched, the book includes helpful notes and citations, an excellent bibliography for further reading and a glossary. You will come away with a clear idea of what life was like for women in the Middle Ages, as well as knowledge regarding politics, community life, morals, and religious thought of the time.

This book is a great find. It not only fills in the void of information about women in the middle ages, but also reveals the unusual amount of power they were able to wield in the more personal structure of the feudal system. It was a revelation to me in many ways, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the changing roles of women through the ages. A smooth and fascinating read!

Between Pit and Pedestal does an admirable job describing the life of real women in the Middle Ages as they live between the 'pit of hell' characeterized by the fall of Eve and the saintly pedestal of the Virgin Mary. The book covers all aspects of medieval life from the home and hearth to sex, religion, land ownership, the legal system and government. The book is readable and is well-suited for the general reader. My only complaint with the book is that at times it reads like a string of factoids strung together and individual stories lacks depth. This fault is somewhat required by the survey nature of the book. Recommended for anyone interested in the Middle Ages or women in history.

How did I miss this one? Helps satisfy the lack of information available about women in the Middle Ages. Intended as a research tool, the background information makes this a great read beyond its obvious academic application.

This book is for all women to read and pass down on to their daughters. We never "really" learn or hear about the injustice to women or what they had to go through in our history books. This book shows you both sides of living from the very poor to the very upper class women and how they all struggled to live in a male dominanted society. Even thought today we still don't live in as strict as a society for women, there are still a lot of parrells forn the Middle Ages until now that this book presents. It also has neat tibits of history that you won't ever find in regular history books and are so fascinating that they leave you spellbound, espeically when you know it's all fact.
