Summary:
Roisin Cossar examines how clerics managed efforts to reform their domestic lives in the decades after the Black Death. Despite reformers' desire for clerics to remain celibate, clerical households resembled those of the laity, and priests' lives included apprenticeships in youth, fatherhood in middle age, and reliance on their families in old age.
