Book Talk: Capital & Corporal Punishment in Anglo-Saxon England
Start Date: 11/13/2014Start Time: 4:15 PM
End Date: 11/13/2014End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description:
Anglo-Saxon authorities often punished lawbreakers with harsh corporal penalties. Despite their severity, however, these penalties were not arbitrary exercises of power. Rather, they were informed by nuanced philosophies of punishment which sought to resolve conflict, keep the peace and enforce Christian morality. The ten essays in this volume engage legal, literary, historical, and archaeological evidence to investigate the role of punishment in Anglo-Saxon society.  Together, these studies demonstrate that in Anglo-Saxon England, capital and corporal punishments were considered necessary, legitimate, and righteous methods of social control.
