Summary expansion
Through a sensitive use of a wide variety of imaginative and didactic texts, Ruth Karras shows that while prostitutes as individuals were marginalized within medieval culture, prostitution as an institution was central to the medieval understanding of what it meant to be a woman. Thisimportant work will be of interest to scholars and students of history, women's studies, and the history of sexuality
