Review "Unique and impressive, beautifully researched, and elegantly written....Strongly recommended for upper-division undergraduates through faculty." E.H. Friedman, Choice

"...solid and illuminating sociocultural study....Solomon's study provides a much-needed social and historical foundation on which to begin to formulate critical antidotes to the bitter medicine of misogyny in medieval Spain." Barbara F. Weissberger, Revista de Estudios Hispanicos

"One can only hope that other contemporary texts will find the same lucid attention that Solomon allots to these two." Elizabeth Rhodes, Speculuma Journal of Medieval Studies

Book Description The Literature of Misogyny in Medieval Spain examines the medical underpinnings of two major misogynist works from the 15th-century Iberian: Alonso de Martínez's Arcipreste de Talavera and Jacme Roig's Spill. Michael Solomon argues that these works gain their persuasive force by linking concerns over health and illness with men's behavior toward women. Solomon shows how the demonization of women in medieval society was more than vagueley cultural; it was a legitimate aspect of the healing arts, considered vital to the wellbeing of men.
