Cities, Texts and Social Networks offers a new interpretation of the pre-modern urban past by highlighting contemporary experiences of the city and their mediation through written, visual and environmental evidence. Comprising of twelve essays that model important new ways of re-imagining the urban world, it points to significant patterns of socialisation in medieval urban milieus, particularly with respect to the role of sanctity, the evolution of charitable landscapes and the coalescence of formal institutions and informal networks of human interaction.
