Abstract

This dissertation will deliver a study about the medieval past (fourteenth to mid-sixteenth century), considering contributions from historians who have interrogated material related to crimes and punishments, violence, and the legal system. Evidence of specific structures to dispense justice and control violence will be researched alongside how different crimes were punished. This dissertation is different because it will use modern peoples’ understanding of these topics, analysed through questionnaires, to collect data about opinions on the medieval past.
