Snow ID: 330
Commentary: Snow 1977: "Various orders of medieval activity are taken up here, largely through information gleaned from the Siete partidas and, less richly, from the remaining Alfonsine works. CSM 24, 327, and 75 provide lively illustration for notes on clerical laxity (p. 29) while several show other religious customs (G. relies largely on Callcott [1923] and, in the chapter on nobility, on Guerrero Lovillo [1949]). On games and diversions, discussions include CSM 6, 238 ,174, 72, 136, and 294, and for the hunt there are illustrations from cantigas 352, 142, 243, and a few others. The author could have made better use of the CSM than he did and he could have been less derivative and more daring in his catalogues of categories of medieval life."
