"Presents fundamental truths about Western self-consciousness. . . . "The Rusted Hauberk "will become a starting point for anyone seriously interested in feudalism as a social force and as a key to understanding many of the themes central to the major and minor texts of medieval literature."--William F. Pollard, Kentucky State University The metaphor of the hauberk, a tunic of chain mail that rusts over time, shapes and unifies this investigation of medieval culture. These essays question the very rubric of the feudal ideal, demonstrating that in historical and legal practice, and in imaginative and didactic writing, a breach often exists between ideal and practice. The authors challenge the notion of a fixed historical construct, emphasizing instead that all constructs must be elastic to allow historical perspectives to enlarge.
