 "The main focus in research on communication has hiteherto been on its outer forms and means, and has, moreover, concentrated on the Early and High Middle Ages: use of language, the use of oral messages as compared with use of writter messages, and symbolic and ritual forms of communication. Research has also concentrated on the upper levels of society and mostly on the clergy. Far less attention has been given to the modes and purposes of communication, especially at the lower levels of medieval society and in the everyday life of local communities and families" (from Introduction)
