The Politics of Social Classification in Late Medieval England The single woman is a troubling and disruptive category. Does it denote all unmarried women, therefore creating a group which every female was part of at some stage in her life Or, were the categories `maiden` and `widow` so culturally significant in late medieval England that `single woman` was a residual category for women seen as anomalous Was the category `single man` used in an equivalent way and, if not, why This study offers a way into the complex processof social classification in late medieval England. All societies use classifications in order to understand and impose order. In this book, Cordelia Beattie views classification as a political act, an act of power: those classifying must make choices about which divisions are most important or about who falls into which category, and such choices have repercussions. Defining how a group or an individual should be labelled, means variables such as social status, gender, or age, are prioritized. Rather than isolate gender as a variable, this bookexamines how it relates to other social cleavages. Using a variety of approaches, from social and cultural history, to gender history, and medieval studies, its original methodology offers an innovative approach to a range of historical texts, from pastoral manuals to tax returns, and guildregisters.

The Politics of Social Classification in Late Medieval England In a culture in which marriage was the desirable norm, and virginity was particularly prized in females, the categories &apos virgin&apos and &apos widow&apos held particular significance. This book investigates the uses of the category &apos single woman&apos . The law gave unmarried women legal rights and responsibilities that were generally withheld from married women. The pervasiveness of religion and the law in people&apos s day-to-day lives led to a complex interplay between moral and economic concerns in how medieval women were seen. As a result they were marked out as &apos single women&apos in very different contexts, and his study reveals the multiplicity of ways in which dominant cultural ideas impacted on them.
