This introductory chapter provides an overview of anthropological and historical perspectives on the Mediterranean honor code and women's power. After discussing the complicated documentary record available on peasants, including Inquisition trials, parish records, notarial texts, and anthropological interviews, it asserts that ethnohistory provides a mechanism for accessing the lives of illiterate peasant women. The introduction ends with an outline of the chapters to follow.

Keywords:   honor code, Inquisition, ethnohistory, peasant women, anthropology
