Abstract

The aim of this study is to provide an analysis of women gender roles and relationships between men and women in Portuguese town councils (Alfaiates, Castelo Rodrigo, Castelo Melhor, Castelo Bom, Guarda, Santarém, Évora e Beja), in the Middle Ages, based on their customs and laws (13th century). We use this source exclusively as it offers multiple fields of analysis to study medieval municipal society.
