Title : Marriage, Concubinage, and the Law [The author analyzes the meaning of concubinage in the Middle Ages with some references to ancient Roman practices.

Includes a detailed look at a 15th century legal opinion as to whether a priest's concubine and son could receive legacies from the cleric.
