Public prostitution was not only tolerated but condoned by all sectors of society, including clerics and municipal officials. In an atmosphere where rape was commonplace and considered only a minor crime, women were frequent victims of male violence Even though the Church was a prime mover in medieval society, life in 15th-century France was fraught with sexual paradox. In an atmosphere where rape was commonplace and considered only a minor crime, women were frequent victims of male violence and desire.
The author proposes that public prostitution may in fact have been viewed by secular and religious authorities as a means of social control and of preserving marital stability--a means by which the virtue of wives and daughters was actually protected.
Rossiaud examines the background of the prostitute, brothel-keeper, and pimp, as well as the social climate that encouraged even respectable men to use their services.
