Medieval Children

“Medieval Children” by Nicholas Orme

Medieval Children covers aspects of English children throughout the Middle Ages.

The book addresses what is considered Philippe Ariès’s central thesis in Centuries of Childhood, that there was no medieval understanding of childhood as a phase, an idea that critics have said Orme refutes successfully.
