Brand new Book. For over a hundred years England repeatedly invaded France on the pretext that her kings had a right to the French throne. France was a large, unwieldy kingdom, England was small and poor, but for the most part she dominated the war, sacking towns and castles and winning battles - including such glorious victories as Crecy, Poitiers and Agincourt, but then the English run of success began to fail, and in four short years she lost Normandy and finally her last stronghold in Guyenne.

The Celestine monks of France represent one of the least studied monastic reform movements of the late Middle Ages, and yet also one of the most culturally impactful.
Their order - an austere Italian Benedictine reform of the late After a period of limited growth, they flourished in the region from c. Not only did the French Celestines expand in this century, they gained a distinctive character that separated them from their Italian brothers. More urban, better connected with both aristocratic and bourgeois society, and yet still rigorous and reformist, they characterised themselves as the 'Observant' wing of their order, having gained self-government for their provincial congregation in following the arrival of the Great Western Schism But, as Robert L.
Shaw argues, their importance runs beyond monastic reform: the late medieval French Celestines are a mirror of the political, intellectual, and Christian reform culture of their place and time. Within a France torn by war and a Church divided by schism, the French Celestines represented hope for renewal, influencing royal presentation, lay religion, and some of the leading French intellectuals of the period, including Jean Gerson.
Ethics and Representation of War in the Lanercost Chronicle, — En Lisboa, de Mayo This article considers the way in which carried out protection of the civilian population in period of the Hundred Years' War, by means of the law, as well as peculiarities of representation of the civilian population in The analysis showed that the concept of "non-combatants" is historiographical. The sources mention only certain categories of the population: clerics, pilgrims, students, wounded soldiers, etc. The mention of non-combatants in legal sources is usually related to their protection. The hypothesis of this study is that the emergence of certain categories of non-combatants in legal sources had a precedent character.
It is important to note that in the ordinances considered, the articles for crimes against the civilian population are placed immediately after the articles for crimes against the Royal person, which reflects the high importance of the protection of non-combatants for the Royal power. However, in relation to crimes against children and peasants, the penalties are milder and limited to the loss of property.
This confirms the thesis that non-combatants were not perceived as a single social group-the civilian population, but were divided into separate categories of the population. Therefore, the standards of protection and punishment of crimes against different categories of the population are also vary. That meant the French landscape was wide open for pillage by the goddamns as the English were called from the phrase the soldiers frequently used. Not only were the French split, but one of the parties, the Burgundians, was allied with the invaders.
Actually, invaders is a misnomer since much of the territory under English sway had been in their hands for decades upon decades. So, the French were in a civil war.
The Hundred Years War: The English in France 1337-1453
The English were routinely victorious to the extent that it seemed God was on their side. Physically and mentally, Charles was a weakling, a graceless degenerate.
He was stunted and puny, with a blank face in which scared, shifty, sleepy eyes, peering out on either side of a big, long nose, failed to animate his harsh, unpleasant features. Unfocused as he was, the Dauphin had enough money and soldiers to battle the English, but no gumption. What is undeniable is that for a few months many Frenchmen thought they were fighting a holy war, and the English went in terror of the Maid and her sorceries. Seward sees Joan as a temporary spark which left to a few French victories. The rise of the French, he argues, may have begun with those few triumphs, but was due to many other factors over the next quarter century.
Seward has an eye for the pithy quote and aptly colorful anecdote.
Aside from what I think is a misreading of the historical importance of Joan of Arc, this is a delightfully sprightly book. Your email address will not be published.
