Item description for Exile in the Middle Ages: Selected Proceedings from the International Medieval Congress, University of Leeds, 8-11 July 2002 (International Medieval Research) by Laura Napran, Elisabeth M. C. Van Houts, INTERNATIONAL MEDIEVAL CONGRESS & Elisabeth M. C. Van Houts...

Although exile or banning was a widespread customary punishment in the Middle Ages, there does not exist a modern study for Europe of this phenomenon for the period before c. 1300. The relative dearth, therefore, of historical and legal studies of exile is in stark contrast to the abundance of studies on exile as a literary or theological theme. This volume fills a gap in existing scholarship, and provides a notable contribution to our understanding of exile in the medieval period. This collection of 15 papers deals with a juxtaposition of documentary, literary, and ecclesiastical sources. Various forms of exile are examined, including political banishment, spiritual exile, exclusion, the vocabulary of outlawry, and voluntary exile through pilgrimage or marriage. Approximately half of the contributions concentrate on instances of exile as a form of punishment or political necessity for secular persons. The other half concerns the exile of ecclesiastics, mostly bishops and abbots, where the close link between excommunication and exile is explored, as well as exile in hagiography and exclusion as spiritual punishment.
