Medieval Words

Ever wonder what a caparison was? a garderobe? Outremer?

If you are interested, fascinated or frustrated by words you don’t understand in books relating to the medieval world take a look at Madeleine Pelner Cosman, Medieval Wordbook and/or this excellent website: http://www.shadowedrealm.com/glossary/

Did you know for example that energumens were people possessed by demons?

About medievalphyllis

I love history and I love writing. I've been working on an historical novel about a medieval viscountess, Ermengarde of Narbonne since 2009. It has been quite a journey and the journey isn't over. Previously I written 6 historical novels for kids, but this is a new challenge.
