This interdisciplinary anthology takes as its starting point the belief that, as the material grounds of lived experience, material culture provides an avenue of historical access to women's lives, extending beyond the reaches of textual evidence. Studies here range from utilitarian tools used in Late Roman abortion to sacred, magical or ritual objects associated with sex, procreation, and marriage in the Renaissance. Together the essays demonstrate the complex relationship between language and object, and explore the ways in which objects become forms of communication in their own right, transmitting both rather specific messages and more generalized social and cultural values.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Such an anthology is certainly overdue, as studies of sexuality have tended to focus on queer experiences...an exciting and interesting addition to the historiography of premodern sexuality.' - Emma Hawkes, Parergon

'This collection of essays is helpful to those who would appreciate an overview on how different academic fields investigate the 'material culture' of sex, marriage and procreation. The necessity of such a project for further historical studies cannot be emphasized enough.' - Medical History
