The People of the Parish, Katherine French, 2001

This excellent book uses pre-Reformation Churchwardens Accounts to show what life was like for the people of the parish, including rural parishes in the 14th, 15th and early 16th centuries. How the parish worked as a community, including of course all the religious ceremonies, plays, processions, holy days, dressing the church, candles.
