Childhood and Emotion synopsis
How did children feel in the Middle Ages and early modern times? How do adults feel about children around them? This collection addresses the basic questions that are rarely asked about social and family relationships by combining two emerging areas of cultural history - childhood and emotion - and providing ways in which to get closer to their common history. This collection brings together a wide range of materials and sources such as court records, autobiographies, and educational guides, and sheds new light on this topic.
The coverage ranges from Europe and Northern Europe in the Middle Ages to the 18th century, and examines Catholic, Protestant, Protestant and Jewish communities. Childhood appears as a function not related to sex or age, but to social relations.
Emotions also appear differently in source-based studies in that they are not derived from recent assumptions but from real experience. With contributions from all over the world, childhood and passion are a step closer to portraying emotions as they were thought to be of historical themes.
This book will set new standards not only for the history of these topics but also for the whole history of social relationships.
