Annotation

Medieval eutopia–Although the author said he was not intending to write a eutopia, this essay presents a eutopia that is rural, with a guild system, crafts, a limit on profit, and a maximum of thirty hours work per week in mills. Closeness of church and state. Anti-democratic. Emphasis on the human scale and small communities. The author sees it as a prediction based on an interpretation of the past.
