      Product Description

      This study focuses on religious gilds or fraternities in both the densely settled shire and the sparsely populated fens of Cambridgeshire, from their apparent proliferation in the mid-fourteenth century to their dissolution under Edward VI in 1558. Gilds exercised social control and contributed to the religious and economic life of the parish, and their changing role reflects social and religious change during the period. Dr Bainbridge's sources include the 1388-9 survey of religious gilds and surviving gild records, wills, manorial records, poll-tax returns, and letters patent.Dr Virginia R. Bainbridge teaches at St Hilda's College, Oxford...This study focuses on religious gilds or fraternities in both the densely settled shire and the sparsely populated fens of Cambridgeshire, from their apparent proliferation in the mid-fourteenth century to their dissolution under Edward VI in 1558, in order to examine social and religious change during the period.Gilds reflected the social hierarchies of their communities, exerting social control and fostering mutual charity in life and commemoration after death; they also made a substantial contribution to the religious and economic life of the parish. Dr Bainbridge examines lay responses to changing devotional and doctrinal patterns through the returns to the 1388-9 survey of religious gilds and surviving gild records; wills, manorial records, poll-tax returns, and letters patent supply further information.
