Abstract

This research intends to discuss the political crisis in the fifteenth-century England through the bills of complaint from Jack Cade's Rebellion (1450) and the parliament rolls between 1449 and 1475. The central aim is to identify the coeval perception of the political crisis and to deepen our main hypothesis that the Jack Cade's Rebellion have put on the agenda subjects particularly sensitives that contributed to shape part of attitudes and perceptions to the following events, above all at London city. The rebellion would have resulted in a certain discourse (between 1450-55) that was appropriated by the king's rival and cousin, Richard of York, in parliament, in complaint practices and in some other political practices during the whole period that we are used to call Wars of the Roses (1455-1483). Wherefore, on the purpose of identifying how different social groups have lived, perceived and acted in this crisis that we will do a crossover between the parliament's sources - as far as the diversification of discussed subjects as his volume - with the three versions of the bills of complaint written by the rebels of Jack Cade's Revolt.
