I've been lurking for a bit but have two questions and hope someone can help
me out. For something I'm writing, I want to try and make sure I have
accurate information so here goes and apologies if this is not entirely
keeping with list subject matter...
1. What were the social attitudes regarding pregnant and unwed women at the
time of the early 14th century? How would they have earned a living if they
had no one to live with/support them?
2. Were there any religious orders (preferably cloistered) active in
Ireland in the beginning of the 14th century and continuing on through at
least the 17th century?
If anyone can help, please email me privately.
