Past studies of medieval Portugal have focused on such specific themes as political or administrative history and voyages of discovery. Oliveira Marques, however, has captured the vast spectrum of Portuguese daily life from the twelfth through the fifteenth centuries The whole of medieval society is depicted, both on a national scale and, more important, society as it affected the individual in his everyday activities. Oliveira Marques gives us an engaging and original social history which examines customary meals, dress, homes, work, spiritual life, even ideas about courtship and love. Medieval Portuguese culture and education, amusements and funeral customs are all a part of this portrait.
A. H. de Oliveira Marques is Professor of History at the University of Lisbon (Universidade Nova de Lisboa) and scientific coordinator of the Centro de Estudos Históricos there. He has published many books on Portuguese history and, in 1998, was decorated by the president of Portugal.
