Larissa “Kat” Tracy publishes book on medieval castration

Castration and Culture in the Middle Ages was published by D.S. Brewer in May 2013 and features fourteen essays from late antiquity to the early modern period.

Grounded in an interdisciplinary approach to medieval studies, Castration and Culture uses archaeology, medicine, history, and literature from a range of medieval linguistic and legal traditions to offer a more nuanced picture of the presence, and absence, of castration in the Middle Ages. The volume brings together a wealth of sources from multiple regions of medieval Europe in an attempt to illuminate the realities regarding castration, and its effect on medieval conceptions of masculinity. This collection is Tracy’s fourth book.
