Summary

This "new classic in both history and anthropology" (The Washington Post Book World) is based on the actual recorded commentaries--taken during an inquisition--of peasants who lived in the French village of Montaillou more than 600 years ago. When Jacques Fournier, Bishop of Pamiers, launched an elaborate Inquisition to stamp them out, the peasants he interrogated revealed, along with their position on official Catholicism, many details of their everyday life. Le Roy Ladurie reconstructs the economy and social structure of the community and probes the most intimate aspects of medieval life: love and marriage, gestures and emotions, conversations and gossip, clans and factions, crime and violence, concepts of time and space, attitudes to the past, magic and folklore, death and beliefs about the other world.
